You can make a small dos partition, and copy the following files in a dir on 
that partition: everything from boot/ dir on your cdrom + base1_3.tgz and 
drv1440.bin from stable/disks-i386 directory on your cdrom.

You can also rawrite the floppy images on floppy disks using rawrite utility 
(int tools/ dir).  You will need to rawrite the following files on the 
floppies:  resc1440.bin, drv1440.bin and base*bin, and then boot with the 
rescue disk in your floppy drive.
