Not possible, because iso filesystem format is different than on-disk format, and computers don't boot iso images from regular disks boot methods are different so what I think you want to do is: newfs the usb stick mount the cdrom and the usb stick rsync the cdrom contents to the usb stick run installboot to install 1st and 2nd stage bootblocks. This is not too hard if you are familiar with bootblocks and have a netbsd system to do it with. If not, it's somewhat difficult. man installboot(8).
