Need help with Mandrakelinux install on old PC

I have an old PC with 48MB of RAM and no CDROM drive.
I want to install Mandrakelinux.
It will not let me do an ftp or http install.
It wants me to do an NFS install.
I do not have access to any NFS server with Mandrakelinux.

Any recommendations (tips or tricks) on how I can still
do some kind of an install via ftp or http?

With such a small amount of RAM, you would have to use a much older version. There are several smaller distros out there, one or two of which are floppy versions that you could try. I can't recall what the name is but you can do a search at for what you are needing.
