How about making a (non-DF-specific) floppy which boots the rest of the
OS from a CD?
I've seen (and used) a few Linux installs where we did this (via LILO)
to boot from a secondary partition on a HD, when installing LILO to the
MBR was not permissible. I don't know how different El Torito is from a
normal boot record, though.
Another option that I fancy is to use a Compact Flash card as a boot
drive. I don't have much experience with this; but I did have a 386
happily booting FreeBSD without any HDs, only a CF card in IDE emulation
