With compliments to FreeBSD's advanced three stage bootloader things 
like this is very easy to do :-) The boot mechanism is one of the hidden 
gems in FreeBSD.

I've compiled a new a new Xserver and I'll see if I can get time to try 
it out this evening. I've also compiled a new rdesktop from their cvs 
repository I'd like to get redirection to a local printer working too so 
I can put these boxes in production.

Printer & disk redirection is working nicely on my "normal" FreeBSD 
machines with rdesktop from cvs.
