There is a project that is *almost* what you need:, 
it fits into one flopy, has drivers for *ALL* NICs (including new 1Gb) 
and it loads both MS-Client (which is free), has a DHCP preconfigured 
and packet driver.

It works just fine with ftp from the WatTcp project! or you can access 
any samba share!

In fact he has made that disk specially for support and mantainance
