Look more into it. It could be your CDROM Have you tied making Boot Disk

o booting from floppy

Download the floppy disk image disks/bootdisk as well as the module disk
image files you need (at least disks/modules1 and likely the network
modules from disks/modules3).

Write the images to floppy disks using the 'dd' command:

dd if=[path_to_image] of=/dev/fd0 bs=36b

On non-linux systems, use the rawrite utility from the dosutils/rawrite
directory (rawrite.exe).
