You can relatively easy produce an USB stick with the FreeBSD version
you like. The steps are:

- use gpart to make partitions in the dev of the USB stick
- svn checkout the source of FreeBSD of the version you want
- make buildworld
- make buildkernel
- mount the USB partition to /mnt
- make installworld DESTDIR=/mnt
- make installkernel DESTDIR=/mnt
- make distribdir DESTDIR=/mnt
- make distribution DESTDIR=/mnt
- umount /mnt

reboot and boot from USB.

I've done this a lot of times to test new kernels or test special

Come back to me if you need more details or in case of problems.
