How to install snapshot release? - (not how to burn cd;
but rather how to make new ISO file)

I think you mis-understood me; there isn't an .iso image file to burn. I do
know how to burn one if such an image existed; it's generating the .iso
image file in the firstplace that I'm trying to figure out... I need to
download the snapshot release for the AMD64 platform, and there doesn't
appear to be any ready-made ISO-IMAGES for that platform, so back to my
original question... how does one take the snapshot release downloaded from
snapshots.jp.freebsd.org, and generate a bootable cdrom or cdrom image file?
(I know how to use mkisofs; more or less generating the boot image I can't
seem to get)...
