You have a few choices:
1) if you don't have a CD, you can create two floppies,
boot from them and install via ftp over the internet
2) If you have a CD that will boot, you can burn an ISO
image, boot off the CD and do the entire install from
3) If you have a CD, but it won't boot, you can boot from
floppies (as in #1) then install the remainer of the
system from CD

If you don't know how to burn an ISO to a CD, read the docs for the CD
burning software you're using, all CD burning software is different.

It depends on the type of install. A minumal is only a few hundred meg, but
a more practical installation will probably require a few gig.
