We have an OLD Altos 386 with :
    8 MB RAM
    60MB QIC Streaming Tape drive (ESDI ?)
    1.2 MB 5.25" Floppy disk drive (ESDI ?)
    Ethernet Card
    370 MB SCSI Hard Drive

We have FreeBSD 2.0.5 and would like to run this on the above machine.  Is
there any way we can install FreeBSD on this machine since it does not have
a 3.5" Floppy drive ??  We have a number of PC's connected on our TCP/IP
network which have 3.5" Floppy drives...   We have a number of Unix (different 
flavours) on the network also...

Is this possible ???

Thanks in advance
