The floppies are dos formatted, I haven't got as far as formatting
disks with freebsd yet. However after you mentioned it I tried
mounting a BSD disk, namely the "fixit disk", and I did not have a

******* Working on device /dev/afd0 *******
parameters extracted from in-core disklabel are:
cylinders=3D0 heads=3D122 sectors/track=3D37 (4514 blks/cyl)

parameters to be used for BIOS calculations are:

Media sector size is 512
