HOW to boot off the 5.4-Release CD with a different kernel that supports more hardware

  The default 5.4 kernel does include the MK-III
patches from Soren as the 6.0 default Kernel does.  I
have problems installing the 5.4 Release on my system
because I am missing these patches.  I have tried
burning a cd while replacing the kernel with a
recompiled one but apparently the mfsroot.flp is not
well updated against the new kernel.  I am relatively
new to FreeBSD and don`t understand well the exact
booting process even after some readings on forums and
web sites.  Could a gentle someone explain how the
modify the original 5.4 Iso and replace the stock
kernel ?

Thanks in advance for any help regarding this.
