I found another image at
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/ppc/kernel/BETA/deflt/floppy/ and tried that.
This got further but hung with the following:

copying OF device tree... done
Initializing fake screen: display
Calling quiesce...
returning 00010000 from prom_init

I'm downloading the image from your site just now.  I'm not sure what you
mean when you say I can boot from a network, my network here consists of a
couple of laptops and the RS6000, none of which is a boot server.  Do you
mean that I could boot from a public server (which is not appealing) or have
I misunderstood?

Thanks for your help,
