Problems with installation via http or FTP

Hello all,

I have downloaded the Fedora bootdisk.img onto a floppy, and the 
installation menu starts up normally when I boot from the floppy. But, 
when I get to the point where I want to download via http or FTP, it says 
I need a driver. Fine; I have the drvnet.img downloaded and placed onto 
another floppy. But then it says that "no devices of the appropriate type 
were found on this driver disk" when I try to use that floppy, which I 
have reformatted and reloaded the driver file on there, with no errors.

It is a new computer this is going on; it's got RH 9 already installed.
I wonder if it is too new for the driver disk to pick up something that 
is needed. Anyone have any ideas?
