Installing debian from floppy disks is no problem at all.

Get the 6 disk-images from your local debian mirror, e.g.
They are 1.4MB each and get burnt to disk by
cp file.bin /dev/fd0
dd if=file.bin of=/dev/fd0
using the dos/windows program rawrite.exe.
smack the one that got rescue.bin into drive A:, reboot, and there you go.
