You can download System 7.0.1 at:
ftp://ftp.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/US/Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_7.0.x/

One of the disks is called "Disk Tools" (after unstuffing) and it will boot any Mac that can run on System 7.0.1.

All you need from that disk to make your own bootable floppy are the files called "System" and "Finder." You can add whatever else will fit onto the floppy.

Please note that the System and Finder files must be in the same folder to work.

-Good Luck
