Hi Yuval;

There may be a configuration switch set to disable floppy boot.

Check the label on the inside cover of the server - find the location of the Maintenance (or Configuration) switch and check the settings.

If they look right, open up switch 6 and power up the server to clear the configuration. Then power down the server, close the switch and try booting to floppy.

Hope that helps,
