No, you don't need floppies any more. Those instructions are outdated. Just use the CDs or DVD.

Which version of Slackware are you attempting to use?

If indeed '-current' then use 'Alien_Bob's-script -mirror-slackware-current.sh' to create the CDset/DVD. After verifying the burnt image(s) you can use either to boot the install.
