Try 'install strategies' on the www.ldp.org
I have no better idea?
Anyhow, you will have to make a floppy with a OS capable of some sort of network or cable-data-transfer...
Tom's RTBT is a good floppy...
seek the CDs of your distro (CD1 and CD2)

Hi

You can make a set of (I think) seven floppies, which you can use to boot to the on-line installation.

Instructions are here:
