You can swap cd and floppy.  You must boot with the cdrom in place.  You
can swap devices while suspended.  If you boot with the floppy in place,
it won't recognized the cdrom.

Debian has the hotswap package.  I have successfully booted with the
floppy installed, and then swapped devices, using hotswap to
discover/enable the cdrom.  I'm not sure if that package is available
for RedHat.
