You need something like PXE, but quite honestly, if you need to
ask about this, it's not likely you'll have much success, as
setting up a PXE boot server is nontrivial. If you don't have
a choice, search for "pxe linux" for some possible hints.
I'd suggest instead putting the blank drive into a computer that
you can boot, installing from there, then moving the drive back
to the computer without the CD-ROM or floppy drive. That mode
will be a whole lot easier than configuring a PXE server.
