Question debian network install floppy


I've been looking all over www.debian.org for the network install floppy. I followed the links about it, and it took me to an installation manual which didn't tell me where to get the download for the floppy(unless i didn't see it). Where can I download debian for a floppy, so I can do a network install? How can I choose whether I want etch or sarge?

Under the floppy directory, you'll usually need to get the boot.img and the root.img according to the MANIFEST file. Be sure to copy them using rawrite or similar.
