The *.flp files are byte-for-byte images of the floppy, not files you should 
place on a floppy. If you want to create FreeBSD install-floppies from DOS or 
Windows you need the "fdimage.exe" utility. You can find it on a FreeBSD ftp 
server in the "tools" directory.

For details on how to use "fdimage" see (section 1.3) :

It should. I run FreeBSD on much older systems.

Good luck,
