I'm working on a linux bootable cdrom just for pepes like you.
boot off cdrom. It loads linux into ram disk.
downloads binary into ram disk
checks for floppy disk with config file. If it finds one, it uses it.
else it prompts you for info, starts folding, and copies config file to floppy disk (if floppy disk present)
The idea is to build cheap boxes w/o hard drive that can be run headless once the config file is created- w/o needing to buy stuff like a hard drive.
I thought about doing it completely floppy based but I'm not sure I can fit support for all mobos/nics on a floppy.
It will work with dual/quad cpu boxes too.
When I'm done with it that is
It also would be good for old machines you have lying about.
When I finish it I'll post a link to the iso here.
