You need to make sure that the BIOS is stepup to boot form the Floppy first. To do this you need to press on of these F1, F2, F10, DEL during POST. One of them should get you in the BIOS, then you need to use the arrow keys and highlight something called Boot, Startup, or something close to these. Under that should be something like 1st Boot, 2nd Boot, and so on to 4th Boot. Change 1st Boot to Floppy or 3.5 Disk 2nd Boot to CDROM 3rd Boot HardDrive. To change these you need to use the Arrow keys, Enter key with the Arrow keys, + or - keys. Sorry for not being able to help you step-by-step, b/c all BIOS are different. Hope that this helps.
