Automated Reinstall

Good Morning (and delurk :-) )

I'm looking into getting FreeBSD to install (well, reinstall)  
automatically on some dev machines - basically I want to record the
current configuration (more or less) and create a CD for each machine that
when inserted into the drive and booted from reinstalls the machine.

I was wondering if anyone could point me to some helpful documentation -
I've seen what the handbook has to say on this, and I've seen the
Jumpstart Guide. Basically I've got as far as realising I need an
install.cfg file, but not finding any documentation (sans skeleton
files) on what this should contain.
