booting from floppy, /bsd.rd from disk partition

I need to use the bsd.rd kernel that is currently
found in snapshots/i386 on my hard disk paritition wd0a:

I can boot from the 3.0 boot floppy to the boot load prompt:


What command do I execute in order to get to the install/upgrade/shell

I've tried:

	boot> boot wd0a:/bsd.rd

The system doesn't like this. If I copy wd0a:/bsd.rd to wd0a:/bsd
I can then perform

	boot> boot wd0a:/bsd

The system then begins to boot "normally". I.e. it doesn't get to the install/upgrade/shell
