Are you sure you didn't overwrite your DOS partition?
As explained in the README file of all FreeBSD CD-ROMs :
you have to build 2 floppies : the kernel-floppy and the MFS floppy.
If you use DOS for this as it seems to be, there is an utility called RAWRITE in the FreeBSD CDROM :
So (you have to find rawrite.exe before, perhaps in e:dos or e:utilities):
rawrite.exe e:floppieskern.flp a: will the kernel boot floppy
rawrite.exe e:floppiesmfs.flp will do the same for the MFS one.
e: is the CDROM drive e:floppies is where kern.flp and mfs.flp are.
