Debian boot floppy creation problem


I have this old P100 computer I want to install debian woody on. The computer is supposed to be able to but from CD's but I get this error message when I try:

ISOLINUX 1.67/DEBIAN-CD 2002-05-14 isolinux: failed to get sector size, assuming 0800 isolinux: disk error 01, drive FF

The CD in question works on other computers so its the hardware thats the problem here. My other option is then to use boot floppys to get the installation going, but nowhere in the debian manual is it explained how to create these and from what.

I want to use windows to create them.

What should I do?
