One suggestion on the CD only idea would be to include a way to mount the 
floppy drive if present.  In many situations one of the key advantages of 
digital is the permanent record of traffic passed. Given the fact that a 
floppy will hold a fair amount of pure text it should be sufficient for 
most tasks and easily changed if full. Being able to maintain an archival 
record can be very valuable.
