I don't suppose you tested it? It'd probably be a good idea to.

Find somewhere with around 100MB free space, cd in there, and as root run

	debootstrap woody woody-chroot/ http://ftp.kernel.org/debian/

(or use some other directory name than woody-chroot/ or some other mirror).
It'll take a while to run, but it shouldn't be entirely ridiculous. Maybe
a similar amount of time to a moderately sized apt-get dist-upgrade?

If that works, there's a good chance your boot-floppies will too (whether
they're 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 or what); if it doesn't there's a good chance that
there's some bug in debootstrap's m68k support.
