Only AIX up to 3.2.5 could be booted from floppy.
Plextor 12x and 20x drives are known good,
another aproach is booting from a SCSI tape or Ethernet.
You don't need a complete mksysb tape, only the first two images of a
mksysb tape. Should be about 3 - 5 MByte.
The bootimage from a C10/C20/41x/42x or 25x should bring your machine up
to reaching the installation media on /dev/cd0.
You can build the tapeboot image and tapeinst image on every machine
