If it is all on one image do something like:

$ vnconfig vnd0 bootfloppy-big/boot-big.fs 
$ mount /dev/vnd0a /mnt
$ ls -l /mnt
total 4079
-r--------  1 root  wheel    40448 Jan 31  2001 boot
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  2040053 Jan 31  2001 netbsd
$ umount /mnt
$ vnconfig -u vnd0

I am not sure how to do it if it is on two disks. Have a look at
