Install From Floppy and CD-ROM

I am attempting to install Debian on a fairly old machine (Intel 486) which 
can't be set up to boot from the CD.  I have created the rescue and root 
floppy disks and am able to boot using them.  However, the installation does 
not give me the possibility of installing the system from the CD (only from 
floppies, a hard disk or a mounted filesystem.

1. Is it possible to install the way I intended (boot from floppy, install 
from CD-ROM)?  If so, am I not able to because of the age of my machine or 
some configuration problem?

2. What would you suggest I do?  I do not have any DOS diskettes and the 
machine's hard drive has no OS on it.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
