I had to install linux on a box without a CDROM, it turned out to be easy enough to nfs mount a CD on another box, and install over the network.

Have been following the thread on splitting files to floppy.  Would this 
work to split the installation files?  Or, is there a specific way to create 
floppy disks to do an install on a machine wihtout a CD-Rom?  I have an old 
486 that I am considering setting up, and it does not have a CD, and I see 
no reason to install one just to put an operating system on it.  Once I get 
it up and running it will be networked to my other machines, so installing 
other software is irrelevant.
