What distribution of Linux are you installing?

For a full install, you'll need to get many hundreds of megabytes of files
onto your hard drive - I don't think you want to do that using only a floppy
drive!

You can install via a network connection, or if you can get the CD contents to
your hard drive somehow (e.g. via DOS/interlink to another machine with a CD
drive), you can install from there. See eg
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/install-guide/
sections 3.6-3.10 for examples of this.
