If you go to the ltsp wiki, you will find some suggestions for booting

I don't understand this part. Surely the purpose of the boot floppy is to
get pcmcia and NIC up and running? Then the real kernel gets loaded.
So the reason the old boot floppy no longer works is because some things
its looking for are no longer located in the same places. This ought to be
fixable, isn't it?
