Ok you can use make your own Windows Boot Floopy by following these instructions:

1. Insert a floppy inot your computer
2. Open up my computer
3. Right Click on the floppy drive and click format
4. Check the box that says make MS-DOS boot floppy or somthing like that. Then click start
5. After the floppy is created, restart your computer with the floppy in it and make sure your BIOS is set to boot from a floppy.

If you dont have a floppy drive check out this site:

http://www.allbootdisks.com/

They have ISOs that you can burn to a cd.

Get MaxBlast4, burn it as an ISO file to as cd, boot from that CD, format with MaxBlast into NTFS format, insert your Windows CD, boot the computer into the Windows CD and choose "Keep partition info" or something like that. And continue installing Windows.

ok
your install cd will format the necessary drive for you
follow these instructions and you can run it properly
restart your pc and start pressing DELETE untill you enter setup
from their you can navigate with your keyboard
locate the first boot device and change it to whitchever cd drive your disk is in then just save and exit

EDIT ( note if you have a usb keyboard you may have to borrow or buy an older one that uses the ps2 plug or get an addapter as it may not work in setup )
