The classical method is by a modification of the method used for 
preparation of the methyl glucopyranosides.  Reacting a solution of the 
free sugar in methanol in the cold with less than 1% HCl (dissolved by 
bubbling HCl gas into the cold methanol) should give a mixture containing 
mainly alpha and beta methyl glucofuranosides.  For details, consult 
Pigman & Horton, or try looking in Meth. in Carbohydr. Chem.
