You can create a blank floppy image with:

   dd if=/dev/zero of=syslinux.vfd count=2880

Then you can format it with FAT12 with 'mkfs.vfat' or whatever, then you 
can install Syslinux to it.  Then you can mount it and copy either or 
both of the two aforementioned modules.  When you boot the floppy image 
with MEMDISK, you should see the Syslinux "boot: " prompt and should be 
able to manually invoke those modules.
