Technically, but you'd have to burn it to a DVD and figure out how to choose 
which to boot from. There are people combining all three to a DVD, but I 
haven't built a release in awhile myself and have never tried making it into a 
DVD. Burning a -CURRENT release is no problem, just source it from your src 
tree. It's really no different than burning a regular release. There's no 
problem burning both iso's the problem will be the boot sector.
