Default boot floppy - internet involved?

On the abandoned BSD-forum I started this thread:
http://www.bsdforums.org/forums/show...7&page=1&pp=15
with the subject "floppy boot error - binary vs ASCII mode?" (oh no, not him again )
It was mainly about an error when trying to boot
Code:
error 4 lba 248 Invalid format
FreeBSD/i386 boot Default: 0:fd(0,a)/boot/kernel/kernel
boot:
No /boot/kernel/kernel
I finally gave up on the idea of trying it with the Compaq, but have a last question on the subject.
A friend came by and said I probably needed to be connected to internet when doing the actual floppy-booting.
I always interpreted the book that it is not so, but maybe I made a stupid mistake there?
(I got the floppies from the web with another machine, of course)
