Stick installs now possible

Michael Neumann came up with an interesting script that creates a bootable DragonFly USB drive.  This makes it possible to boot up and install on a netbook that lacks a normal CDROM, for instance.

    Heh. Stick installs have BEEN possible. Had trouble with sysinstall on FreeBSD (yes, sysinstall is really wearing out its welcome after all these years) trying to set up a FBSD partition next to scaled down VISTA partition. Couldn’t get nanoBSD/picoBSD/mumbleBSD to work, so I finally just manually created a 4 GB usb drive with a minimal FreeBSD plus a dump of my old /usr partition. Tedious, but worked great.
