Bootstrapping usb flash

I have a Lacie Orange 7Gb usb flash drive, into which I've tried to 
FreeBSD 6-RELEASE a couple of times.
I've had no luck booting it, only a "invalid diskslice" -message after 
installation and boot.
However, netbsd3 boots nicely with default install off the drive,
as does archlinux after modifying the mkinitrd.conf a little.

I was wondering if there is something I could do to make FreeBSD boot 
it too, since it is the OS I would prefer.

ps. I'm not subscribed atm
