Floppy disk fail to boot when install suse 8 with boot from floppy

I have 2 hd drives, hda is for win2K, hdb is a new one.

I have about 40G left on hdb. Suse 8 installation can correctly pick up the space and partitioned it into 2 parts:
hdb3 : about 1G for swap
hdb4 : about 39G for root

I only changed the booting part to boot from floppy disk. After YaSt finish CD 1 and wrote something (lilo I think) into floppy, it asked me to remove CD and reboot from floppy.

Everything seems fine untill now. However, floppy disk failed to boot, a lot of "07" displayed on my sceen.

I tried using empty floppy and boot floppy, created with the way Suse introduced, rawritewin write bootdisk from CD1 under disks, the both have the same problem. Can anyone tell me what kind floppy I should use before YaSt write to it?

Many many thanks!
