Default Bad system - need to reinstall windows

Ok, so I got a system from my friend. I payed him around 150 bucks for this HP computer, that he had just reformated. Good specs for $150 I think.
AMD 2800+
40 gig drive
floppy drive
CD burner
512 PC2700 ram
Geforce 4mx intergrated 64mb
16 bit sound
crappy speakers and crappy mouse.

Ok, I have an issue when I try to use the boot floppys (the 6 disk one) that I want to use, in order to install Windows Professional.
Everytime I start the computer up and boot it off the floppy drive, the computer will sit at a black screen, and after around 10 seconds, it'll say something like "NTLDR is missing, press ctrl + alt + del to restart" I really don't think its a floppy disk issue since its happening to every floppy that I try out.

Any help would be sweet, since I am planning on making a little LAN party.
