Hi,
I'm used to migrate GNU/Linux system from one box to another by booting the
second box with a liveCD (like systemrescueCD for example) and by copying
the "/" filesystem (using the ssh transport)  with rsync.
I would like to do the same for BSD system but i have two issues:
- as the UFS write support is still experimental in the Linux kernel, it
seems that i've to use a BSD liveCD but i can't find one :-/ I heard about
frenzy ( http://frenzy.org.ua/en/ ) but the homepage says that the project
is no longer maintained !
- i'm wondering how to restore the bootloader after copying the files on the
second box. On linux, i can use the grub-install script to do the job but
i'm a bit lost on FreeBSD :-)

Thanks for your help !
