Not really as your problem is the boot floppy and that already does not 
contain anything that can be dropped. You could try compiling a custom 
kernel, but that won't be an easy process either.

Two options:
- if your laptop supports PXE booting (over the network), you can try the
  netboot images; see installation guide for instructions
- install Sarge and upgrade
