How to install snapshot release?

Odd question here, but have been unable to figure this one out...

Downloaded the 'current' snapshot from, but how do
I create a bootable cdrom from this stuff?

I am trying to do an install based on a snapshot, as my system (Compaq
R3140CA laptop) has issues with the -RELEASE level on account of the ACPI
keyboard probe, which has apparently been fixed/patched in -current.

Any guidance would be great... does anyone happen to have a valid .iso image
or know of where one could be found for an AMD64 -current installation cd,
or even better yet, a script or article on how to create one myself?

Hoping someone can help....
