In a word, yes -- sure you can.
All you have to do is abide by the terms of the licensing.
Primarily, that's the FreeBSD license which says that you can do what
you like with the software and documentation, just don't deny credit to
the people that actually wrote it.
Some parts of the material in FreeBSD is under GPL, which means
that you have to ensure source code is available for those bits: if
you're redistributing the standard .iso images from the FreeBSD web
sites, you can just point to the ways of getting the sources in the
Whether reselling for profit something that anyone can get for free
is a viable business proposition I'll leave up to your better judgement.
