Did you set the VMWare BIOS to boot from the floppy?


Is the floppy enabled at VMWare startup?

Yep, the seek light comes on.  Looks like it is reading and then -
Operating system not found.  The boot floppies work on other computers
and I've tried several boot floppies.

Make sure you don't have the floppy mounted in Linux; I believe VMWare has trouble sharing a device, although I wouldn't think it would even hit the floppy light in that case. Still, just a thought . . . .
