Architecture: i386
Machine: i386

I had built a -current (5.99.56) release, and tried to boot the
resulting floppy set on an old i486 system.  The boot loader read all
5 floppies, complained about failing to load ffs.kmod, and then the
system rebooted.

I chose to repeat the above scenario with a serial console, and
gathered the following log:

NetBSD floppy diskette installation
