not, for sure
I have in a personal project some 48 mb computers booting from a floppy
with a RS-232 mouse and they work right.

In the past I have had problems with some via based chipsets because the
graphic card driver was really bad. I would look that way, try to boot
them using a vesa driver and check the differences in perfomance.
