No floppy Drive for Slackware 10.0


Just a quick question about a slackware installation on an IBM thinkpad t40p. I was wondering do I really need a floppy drive for the boot disk or can I just adjust my bios to boot to the cd first and use a cd as a bootup disk. Then just continue with the installation. Thanks
