Try removing all the extras on the computer and just install the floppy drive. Set all the IDE drives to none in bios and be sure that the system is set to boot to the floppy disk first. Put a dos boot disk in the drive and see if you can get to an A: prompt.

Was the computer sold as working? You probably would get more responces to this if it were posted in the hardware section.
