I had the distribution on a partition on wd2. I had to manually mknod the device nodes on the install floppy in order to mount the partition and access the distribution.

Try to access wd2 from the install floppy (boot.fs).

Add the appropriate device nodes in /dev on the install floppy. While you're at it, add wd3 too.
