If you don't have a floppy, I would recommend using
the DOS version to install BasicLinux.  Simply create
a temporary DOS partition (if you don't already have
one) and run the DOS version of BasicLinux.  Then use
BasicLinux to prepare a Linux partition and execute
install-to-hd.  After checking that BasicLinux is 
running OK on the partition (using loadlin from the
DOS partition), you can then move the kernel from
the DOS partition to the Linux partition, configure
grub to boot the kernel/partition, and delete the
DOS partition.
