Install Fedora 3 on a laptop booting by floppy

I would like to install Fedora Core 3 on my old toshiba satellite 4070 cdt.
The problem is that I had to change the cd-rom 2 years ago and now it's no more bootable. So I need an install boot floppy diskette in order to install FC3.
Looking in the cd1 I saw that the boot iso is too big for a floppy....

What can I do in order to install FC3 by a floppy??

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Have a look at this article. If you have a network card then you can do a network install.
