Do you want to build a floppy that will just pass control over to the CD,
I don't know if this is possible, but since you still have to use a floppy,
then why don't you use the floppy provided by your distro?
Usually you'll find a floppy image on the CD that will boot the system and
then the install will go-on using the CD.
