A floppy is to small to hold a image of any OS.
The Puppy Linux needs to be booted from the CD. There is no way to get it to work through a USB external. It needs to start and load to memory.

Run from Floppy with a disk image
A floppy disk image is a file that contains every sector of the floppy disk. You cannot copy the image file on a floppy disk like a common file. It's required to use a special program that writes sector per sector of the image file to the floppy disk sectors. There are many programs available to do this.
Download the current boot manager plpbt-5.0.7.zip. Extract it to get the floppy disk image plpbt.img.
DOS: You can use diskimg.com with diskimg -d a -w plpbt.img
Windows: Write the disk image with the program rawwritewin to the floppy disk
Linux: dd if=plpbt.img of=/dev/fd0
You can configure the plpbt.bin on the floppy with plpcfgbt.
