You want a serial console for this: connect a COM port to another computer.
On the other computer use cu to connect (I assume you connected
the cable to the first serial port on both end):
cu -s 9600 -l /dev/tty00
on you machine, when you boot from floppy, hit a key while the boot loader
counts down to get a prompt, and type:
consdev com0 
Now the boot prompt should appear in cu on the other computer.
