DSL on VERY old laptop

Ok it was recomended to me that IF I can even put linux on my laptop I should install DSL.Well before I get started ill give you all a little background. My old laptop is a Toshiba satellite Pro 435CDS 100 or 133Mhz system with only 16MB of ram<---if I recall correctly. Well my laptops BISO does not support booting to a cd so I have a floppy disk I created with fdimage which is working great. Well here is my issue. No matter what type of install I do (text only, load CD to HD then run, base, etc.)it just seems to not want to work. An error I keep getting is rather extensive so I will hand type it the best I can and hope someone here can help me. Well I tried again and it seems its like a 4 or 5 part error so I will do my best at typing it up since all parts are different.

CPU: 0
EIP: 0010:[<c012db85>] Not tainted

Process cp (pid: 39, stackpage=c0499000)

Call Trace: [<c00140999>] [<c012da1e>]....more

The above part of the error was at the top of my screen

*pde = 00000000

This one was at the bottom of the screen and was all I could realy see.Im not able to see everything that is off the screen. I hope this might help in figuring out what the deal is..If more info is needed just let me know. Thank you all for the help.
