Actually, I get a new error on the way:

quartz# pwd    
quartz# dd if=/dev/zero of=new count=2880
2880+0 records in
2880+0 records out
1474560 bytes transferred in 1 secs (1474560 bytes/sec)
quartz# vnconfig -c -t floppy3 -v /dev/vnd0d new

quartz# disklabel -w -r /dev/rvnd0d floppy3
quartz# newfs /dev/rvnd0a floppy3
/dev/rvnd0a:    2880 sectors in 80 cylinders of 2 tracks, 18 sectors

super-block backups (for fsck -b #) at:

which didn't happen on the ffs partition. Also maybe someone could
check, should I be using rvnd0d (i386) or vnd0a in the disklabel
