Oh. I didn't know you had another drive.

Uhhh, yeah, that should work, assuming the installer will let you do it. Burn the patch.pl to a different CD (though that seems to be a waste of 700MB... but oh well), and put it in instead of the disk. Then follow the rest of the instructions. Look for somewhere where the installer asks for where the device containing the patch.pl file is, and give it the device corresponding to your second CD drive (probably /dev/hdd, assuming your second CD drive is the slave on the secondary channel).

If it won't work with anything other than a floppy, that's a bad design, but you can't really do anything about it. You'll have to figure a way to get a disk working...
