Unfortunately, I'm not close to my 4400 at the moment, so I can't help
(and I have no experience with the woody boot floppies). 

The boot.img for the 2.4 kernel booted for me (but had problems reading
the root.img, which might be model-specific to a few 4400 variants
judging from my and others' experiences with this specific system).

Please try pinging me again at the weekend, I'll have more time then.

Good luck,

PS: The BootX method is much easier and both the 2.4 and 2.6 netboot
images should work with that boot loader.
