Generally you need to copy the 'release' area from one of the FTP
sites -- so, for 4.9-RELEASE on i386, you'ld copy the stuff from under:


That should also be what appears inside the installer iso images,
which is an alternate place you could copy what you need from.

Note: this *won't* make the 2nd drive bootable as an install system.
You'll have to use the floppy or CDRoms to boot from still.

Note2: Not sure exactly how much of the stuff under is strictly
necessary to do an install.  You'll have to experiment.
