You can put a floppy image onto a CD image easily enough.

Make a directory called /tmp/bootable. Copy the floppy image in there
and call it boot.img, then make your image with something like 'mkisofs
-b boot.img -o /tmp/boot.iso /tmp/bootable'.

If your floppy image is exactly 1440KB in size, mkisofs will assume it
is a 1.44MB floppy.

Whether that works for what you want it to do remains to be seen of
