Installing a FreeBSD from Scratch From a Linux Box?

I am curious as to whether or not this is actually possible. The idea
is to install FreeBSD from scratch using a Linux live disc akin to how
one would install Gentoo. That means that I would create the
filesystems, mount them on partitions, download and build the sources,
chroot in, and do configuration that way. The main reason is that
since there is no talking live installer for the visually impaired, it
would be difficult to get an install going without sighted assistance.
Any thoughts/ideas are welcome.
