Well, if your machine has a BIOS, you should be able to boot it from
floppy or CD and start the installation from there.
The only requirement mentioned in the guides about for existing computer
with an existing OS is to create the floppies, IIRC. The target computer
doesn't need any OS; installation is even easier if you don't have to
worry about overwriting it ;-)
