distribution that comes with boot floppy image
 
I am trying to make use of some older equipment, and am looking for a distribution that comes with a boot floppy image that I can use write to a disc with rawrite. It can be a light distribution, but should have a modern browser and office suite. Thanks.

It might be pretty difficult to find a browser and office suite that fit on a floppy. Is your problem that the system cannot boot from a CD, and therefore a live-CD distro won't work? If yes, then there are ways around that. There are floppy-based boot managers that allow you to bootstrap your floppy drive to a boot system. I've used a couple of different ones; one is called Smart Boot Manager and is easy to find. Googling 'boot manager' seems to yield numerous promising hits.
