Forget about it. Java Runtime Environment is too big to put in single floppy disk.

You don't need to do that. ( put java support into kernel )
Java has nothing to do with kernel unleast you configure the kernel in very weird way. This is unlikely happen. Just install linux as usual into old computer. Then install java RE into the os.
but I doubt the performance java in old computer.

Hope that helps.
