Error messages

I'm attempting to install Debian to an  NEC UltraLite VERSA laptop (12 MB Ram, 180 MB Drive) using 1.44 MB floppy disks.  The laptop doesn't have a CD ROM.

Here is what the partition table indicates:
/dev/hda1       /target/boot    Linux native            5.12 MB
/dev/hda2       swap            Linux swap              5.12 MB
/dev/hda3       /target         Linux native            5.12 MB
/dev/hda4       - not available -       DOS extended           (not sure what happened here)
/dev/hda5       /target/usr     Linux native            167.68 MB

When I get to the "Install the Operating System Kernal and Modules" step, I get the following two dialog boxes (usually on the second driver disk):

Error writing to output file:  Success

File Error
There was a problem installing the Drivers from /target/drivers.tgz

I've tried using other disks (with a fresh driver-2.bin file), but can't seem to get past these errors.  Might this be a floppy drive problem?  Any help you can provide would be great.  Many thanks.
