No floppy-images for FreeBSD 8.0 installation anymore?

just checked it. There is a 'boot from usb-cdrom' option in the setup. I guess I have to sacrifice a usb-stick for the installation. Will it work this way?

This is not yet updated in the the handbook -- but the 8.0-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img seems to be a file I have to dump on the usb-stick. Is this the boot-file I need for the ftp-install?
