Can't install Slackware

I'm trying to install the latest revision of Slackware. I have a boot
floppy with Speakup on it. At the prompt, I type:
which is my cdrom drive. The drive is found, but it says 'No initial
console'. The Kernel Panic error states:
"Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init option to kernel.".
I've tried using rawrite to make a root floppy from the rootdsks folder on
the CDRom and mounting that with:
which is my floppy drive, thinking from there I could mount the CD. When I
do this, I am prompted for the root floppy. After inserting it, I get the
"Kernel panic: Could not mount device hda0" which is my hard drive. It's
still Fat16, but I intend to make it a native Linux partition: thus using
these root floppies and the CDRom to do it.
What's happening here? Am I missing something obvious? I'm a Windows user
with only telnet experience to unix, so apologies for the basic questions.
