If you are able to boot anything then your ``boot floppy'' is fine.  All
the floppy holds is Grub.

It is supported; I have an AIC7895 that works great.  If sounds to me
like it might be the next device that is causing you problems, most
likely the network card.  You could try removing devices until it works
or build a custom kernel with only your own hardware (this is very easy
on a Debian system).
