Here's the rundown:
SSDD 8-sector: 160K  This is all that was available in MS-DOS 1.0, IIRC.
SSDD 9-sector: 180K
DSDD 8-sector: 320K
DSDD 9-sector: 360K  This was the default starting with MS-DOS 2.1, IIRC.
DSHD 15-sector: 1.2G (At least I think it was 15-sector...)

Only the last two appear to be supported by FreeBSD 4.7, at least by
