Default How to install OpenBSD on MacBook Air?

As I read here OpenBSD works OK on MacBook Air:
The new KMS code brings up the MBA's eDP display in 1366x768 with backlight control. ACPI works as expected for battery/AC status, CPU throttling, and full suspend/resume support. The Broadcom wireless card does not work, [...]
How can I install OpenBSD on this device?

I tried:
- Installed rEFIt on MacOS X to get a boot selector
- dd'ed install53.iso to USB-Stick (sd0c) using another OBSD machine
=> reFIt doesn't recognize the USB-Stick as a bootable device

I don't really care about dual boot. Using whole wd0 for OBSD would be OK.
