diskless workstation?

I have a spare 486 that I would like to utilise in some form for debian.
Unfortunatly, it has no hard disc, although it does have a network card.
The rest of the network consists of an NT4 server, two W95 workstations,
and another debain (hamm) box, which currently talks to the others via
basic TCP/IP services (ftp etc), and samba.

Is there a simple way of creating a boot floppy that will get enough off
the ground to load the rest of linux off one or other of the other systems
(presumably the other debian box!)  or do I have to scrounge another hard

Thanks in advance,
