You need two floppies, if you has a supported net device (see
debian/dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/images-1.44/compact/kernel-config).
If the compact-kernel don't support your card, you need a extra driver
disk. (all with the potato floppies)

after this you can all download from the net, your local mirror, etc.
