You might save yourself time and money buying a cheap switch and doing 
your jumpstart install on a separate closed network completely isolated 
from the rest of your networks, without VLAN tagging required.

If you have lots of nodes to install it makes sense to maintain your own 
repository of freebsd and packages, and it's good practice to keep your 
preproduction systems separate from production, so there is no need for 
network access.
