I emailed you the self-extracting executable.  This has the DOS drivers (needed to boot from a floppy).

Load the ASPI8DOS.sys and the ASPICD.sys in your config.sys then load MSCDEX.exe in your autoexec.bat.
example:

config:

DEVICE=A:\ASPI8DOS.SYS
DEVICE=A:\ASPICD.SYS /D:MSCD001

autoexec:

A:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001
