    debian boot floopy

    Make your own from GNU/Linux with (alter the 'debian-7248' name as appropriate):
    Code:
    dd if=debian-7248-boot.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=36b
    or make it with a 3rd party OS with:

    I was rewarded with the link above by a google search on "linux debian boot floppy"

    If you're looking for a network install get the boot, root, and net-driver disks from www.debian.org. Go to http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/installmanual and following the directions for your hardware (most likely Intel x86).

    Good luck!
