Brandnew floppy - formatted again, even though new, just like the FreeBSD Unleashed-book described.

But that's not my question (I gave up on the Compaq; it's thrown out)...
My friend reckons the machine has to be connected to internet, whereas I (interpreting the book) thought this was not necessary
So, has anyone done a boot by floppy without internet-connection?
