Well, yes, but you're going to have to format the hard drive to DOS
first. And still figure out a way to get FreeBSD to boot.

They might exist, but I've never met a BIOS that could boot from a
floppy image. CDs can do that, if the CD image is set up for it.
If you have a floppy drive, you should probably install from floppies at
least once. 2.0.5 doesn't look like it took that many, either.
