Have you gone into your CMOS settings and made sure the boot sequence includes the floppy drive?

Have you burned a CD bootable image, or just the floppy?

The reason it says "Replace the disk, and hit any key to reboot" is because your system doesn't recognize the boot disk as "bootable".

Did you use a new floppy to make the boot diskettte? If not, try that. Even if it is un-used but old...the ferrous-oxide on floppies deteriorates over time.
