You need some bootable way if it doesn't boot right now. Pc card might work, network boot may work. Take out drive and do a very complex instal that way.
Floppy drive has ways to work.


I'd either fix the cd or buy a new laptop.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
