Your best bet will be to share the CD or DVD drive that contains a Linux distribution on it, then COPYING the actual image file (.img) and using the utility rawrite to write the image onto a floppy disk! Good luck! Let me know
if you need more help!

PS: you can find rawrite on the same CD or DVD that has your linux distribution in it!
