Install Debian from DamnSmallLinux?

Hey Fellas,

I'm in quite the little interesting situation here. I have an old computer that I want to put debian on(just play along ). Anyways, for now, I have tried many times to make a debian installer from floppies but have run into three problems
1. I don't have any (working) floppy drives on any computer but the one I am using
2. The computer I am using no longer boots up into the DamnSmallLinux, but does boot into a shell, or whatever.
3. I only have 1 working floppy disk

So what I want to know if I can do, is somehow get some type of debian file that will allow me to install debian from the shell. Like, trick it into thinking it is booting off of a CD or Floppy.

What would be the best way to do this? I am able to use the internet on it(links), but do not know what other types of programs are on there that I could use to my advantage.

Thanks for ANY help!
