In my opinion, the best online how-to for this by far is the one at - I intend to produce  
something for the handbook once I get the time, but if you follow the  
instructions there you will not go far wrong.

On metalink yesterday I noticed that "Intel FreeBSD" appears in the  
list of operating systems when you raise a TAR (whoops, I mean SR  
these days), so perhaps they will support it if you pay them enough,  
I don't know.
