Geekery: Install an OS on a Fujitsu B-2131 without a CD

A co-worker gave me an ancient Fujitsu Lifebook B-2131. I want to turn it into an ultra-portable netbook thingie.
The catch? No cd-rom.
Apparently the world has forgotten the world of the boot floppy and internet installs.
Well, almost everyone.
Turns out that if you have a floppy drive, and 5 spare 1.44MB disks, there is a way to install Ubuntu over the Internet! [SEE HERE]
We ran out of time and floppy disks today, but this looks like a cool father-son project for this week.
Further updates as they are warranted.
