Be aware there are currently two desktop 'distributions' of FreeBSD which I'm aware of, both of which include nice graphical installers. PC-BSD ( and DesktopBSD ( In fact, both of these projects have just released new versions of their installers. You could simply use one of them (build from svn) or use one as a base to expand upon.
