Someone said to me the other day that it is possible to convert a linux
install ISO, such as openSUSE, Fedora or Ubuntu and put it on floppy
disks to install from directly with no CD.

If he said, it was possible , he would have been right. Indeed over twenty
years ago in then days of kernel 1.0.x , installation from floppy disks was an
option.
But nowadays there is one major technical problem with mainstream
distributions : Todays installation systems don't fit on one bootfloppy.
