Question install Free BSD to boot off a floppy


Really sorry to bother you with this. I read all relevant manuals/documentations and this very specific point is not detailed ->

I am currently installing FreeBSD (Windows XP is 1st OS on that hard drive and I freed an extra partition of that same drive for FreeBSD) and am stuck at following step:
I need to boot FreeBSD off a floppy (so no trace of FreeBSD at all at boot up of my PC...unless I boot the PC with that floppy to get to the FreeBSD partition). I am currently stuck at this menu of the install:
-Install FreeBSD Boot Manager
-Install a standard Boot Manager
-Leave the Master Boot record Untouched
logically it's the last choice "Leave the Master Boot record Untouched". Am I right? Then I believe I should just follow instuctions on how make that boot floppy (I'll check if instructions are clear as of what file to edit and what needs to be edit in there). Thanks for your help.
