This is a catch-22 sitution.  I was lucky enough to be given 2.2.5 disks.  
However, I do believe that creating a boot floppy will give you everything 
you need.  

I assume you have web access.  Have you been to the FreeBSD handbook?

think you'll find that Step 3 is where you get the boot floppy image.
