I happen to have the same problem with different (all NEW) floppies and 
different kern.flp files (4.8, 4.9, 4.10) even from diiferent FTP 
servers (!) on my old compaq prolinea 66MHz (DX2) 20MB RAM. Everytime I 
boot a kern floppy it gives a zf_read error. This error does not occur 
on other (modern) pc's so the floppy seemes oke but other boot disks 
(for instance my debian installation disk) do work, so the floppy drive 
seems to read oke as well. What can I do to install FreeBSD 4?

Yours sincerely,
