Make sure the PCs meet the requirements.

If the PCs do not have enough memory I suggest Slackware.

You can create a boot floppy by inserting the 1st CD into a windows machine and when the auto menu is displayed select install from floppy. Click on the box next to the empty box, click on the images directory and select cdrom.img. And then select write.
