Trouble installing debian from floppy

I've been trying to do so using floppies whose raw images I ftped. I think 
there is a problem with getting these images copied on the floppies...I'm 
using a Unix system to make these floppies..and I think it automatically 
MOUNTS the image onto the DOS floppy. 
When trying to boot from these floppies, the first one works fine..the 
Installation boot floppy. Next, when it asks for the installation root 
floppy, after I slip it in it gives the following error:

crc error <5>VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER.
when I do so again, it gives the following long error:

[MS-DOS FS Rel 12, FAT 12, check=n, conv=b, uid=0, gid=0, umask=022]
[me=0xc9, cs=580, #f=121, fs=10636, fl=56346, ds=12758, de=61312, 
data=16593, se=9149, ts=-860703613, ls=2973]
Transaction block size=512
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on 02:00
Can anyone figure this out? I'm new to linux and am lost...would 
appreciate help!
