Downgrade FreeBSD 5.1 or 5.2 -> 4.9

is there a way to downgrade from FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE
or 5.2-CURRENT to the latest 4.x version?

Have tried via "sysinstall" and "Upgrade" but it always
complaints that there is no "base" section found when
I set in Options "4.9-RELEASE".

Note: I have no console access to the machines only
telnet/rlogin. Thus using a boot floppy/CD is not possible.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen / Best regards
