Unhappy needs initrd.img for network installation?


Hello everyone,
I have the Thinkpad i series which was originally W98 machine. This CD Rom drive doesn't work so I tried to install from http. I downloaded bootdisk.img and drvnet.img and then I made two floppy disks. I used rawrite for windows to make two disks. I inserted the bootdisk.img disk to boot....but soon after that it fails. The error message is "needs initrd.img". How do I boot in this case, or what kinds of bootdisk do I need?? If you know how to do that, please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
