Thank you all for your responses .. I pretty sure I can do it now.
I think you all went off on a tangent ... The computers I'm setting up only have a Motherboard and video card and harddrive, so the only possible way to boot is off the harddrive. (Without the purchase of additional hardware ;-)

You can put this in lilo.conf to boot a floppy from lilo:
This lets you boot off the HD, so you can get into linux fast without
having the BIOS grind your FD. If you want to boot off a floppy, you can do
so without going into the BIOS setup. (The "unsafe" option makes it
possible to run /sbin/lilo without a floppy in the drive.)
