 I agree with blackend@ that it should not just be removed,
 since floppy images of i386, amd64, pc98, and sparc64 for 7.3 and 7.4-RELEASE
 are also available.

 I also agree with eadler@ that floppy is not a primary installation media.

 How about moving the text to chapter 2.13
 (Preparing Your Own Installation Media) like CDROM images?
