Well, that is essentially the way the CD installer is done.
I made one of our variation of FreeBSD a few years back when it
was only two floppies - had just gone up from 1 to 2.   It would
take me a while to remember what I had to do, but pretty much
everything I did was right out of documentation with maybe a little
research on some other online publication sites (OnLamp, etc).

So, study a little and good luck,
