	Just a guess, but...
	He could have booted off the network, in which case he wouldn't
need a floppy.  In which case the solution is simple: boot off the network
	Then, since it's probably more convenient to have a custom kernel
that knows that the root filesystem is on a harddrive, use the stuff in
/usr/src/distrib/alpha/floppy-GENERIC, but using a kernel config'd with
the appropriate disk+partition set for root. (and any other customizations)
