I had the problem a couple of months back, and all the servers I had 
available at the time were -stable.  Also note: I did not have physical 
access to any CD drive, so I needed to get the necessary stuff out of 
the image.  If GEOM now allows one to mdconfig the image, and the 
partitions are picked up automatically, all the better.

A colleague of mine is currently setting up a -stable based JumpStart 
server; I'll try to get him to post his experiences here...
