How exactly are you creating your image?
The basic directories in a FreeBSD install iso are 'boot' (containing
the kernel that will be used for the CD boot) and a directory with the
name of the release e.g. 7.2-RELEASE. If you wish to include packages
they should be in a 'packages' directory on the root of the CD. If live
functionality is required (FreeBSD livefs CD) there are more
directories, essentially resembling the structure of an installed base
