Your boot options are:

CD (boot.iso, first CD, the DVD, even the rescuecd.iso)
USB Flash (diskboot.img)
PXE (kernel and initrd included for this in the images/ directory on the CD 
and exploaded tree)
Grub (use the pxe kernel and initrd in a grub line for an existing system)

The 2.6 kernel is just too big to fit on floppy anymore.  Time to move on.  
Your kickstart file can still be on a floppy if you really want it to.
