Boot loader on floppy needed


Greetings to all.
I want to install linux (suse) on a laptop, using an external cdrom device but the cd is non-bootable.
My guess is i should create a boot floppy but i don't know how (what to put inside, etc.)
Can someone help me or post a link for me?
Thanx in advance!

are you absolutely sure that the cd is non bootable? are you sure you dont just need to go into the bios and set it to boot from usb device?
