Unhappy Problem installing Mandrake 8.1 with a floppy disk


I tried to install Mandrake 8.1 with a floppy that I made.
I get to the very first welcome itstallation screen and I hit enter and it seems to load up.
Then I get this message "boot failed. please change disks and press a key to continue.
It then goes back to the first welcome screen again, Help!
What am I doing wrong?
Maybe I didn't make the floppy right, can you buy one somewhere aready made?
