WHat means "floppy format"? You need to write RAW data sector-to-sector to the floppy (if I understand the problem) using
dd if=image_file of=/dev/fd0
on UNIX, or with rawrite on Windows.
  The resulting diskette'll contain small booting program which unpacks the rest of the data (~4M, packed to one floppy) to RAM, then starts freebsd.
  This diskette won't be readabe nor on Windows, neihter on *nix!
