If you have an extra drive handy and another machine, you can dd the
floppy27.fs to the hard disk.
Alternatively, if you already have something installed, or if you already
have a bootable system, you can dd floppy27.fs to the swap partition and
then tell the boot program to boot from hd0b:/bsd
Finally, if your machine/network card supports it, you can do a netboot
from another machine.
I've done the first two many times with success. (To boot my sparc without
cdrom or floppy) Never tried the third.
