To write the USB IMG file to a Flash Card or USB pen drive you can do this with the Unix/Linux command dd:

dd if=<path_to/img_file.img> of=/dev/da0 bs=1m

Just substitute da0 with the device name of your USB stick.

NOTE: The USB images are FreeBSD-UFS formatted, and will not show up as a viewable file-system under Windows.

ADD SECTION ON how-to to flash a USB pen drive with the installer image. On Unix system this can be done with dd(1) and on Windows there's a nice tool with gui written by the M0n0wall crew: http://m0n0.ch/wall/physdiskwrite.php
