Assuming that you have a working FreeBSD DHCP/NFS server on 192.168.1.10 already configured and that your network is 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0

I also assume that you can access the serial console of the machine to be netbooted from the host via tip(1), conserver-com, etc.

           host testbox {
                fixed-address 192.168.1.101;
                hardware ethernet 00:16:3e:00:00:04;
                next-server 192.168.1.10;
                filename "pxeboot.9";
                option root-path "192.168.1.10:/pxeroot/9.0-RELEASE/";
           }

tftp    dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/libexec/tftpd      tftpd -l -s /tftpboot

ttyu0   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   vt100   on secure

           host testbox {
                fixed-address 192.168.1.101;
                hardware ethernet 00:16:3e:00:00:04;
                #next-server 192.168.1.10;
                #filename "pxeboot.9";
                #option root-path "192.168.1.10:/pxeroot/9.0-RELEASE/";
           }
