Problems Reproducing a Boot Diskette for RedHat 7.1

Description of problem:
I work at a private company that is a tenant on the grounds of a government
I have been using a boot diskette to start Redhat 7.1. I recently came back
from vacation and a server had been added to our network. In the past, I was
directly connected to a LAN and I was the only one in the office running
redhat. Now all of the machines in the office (4 total) are connected to the
The server has antivirus software that investigates everything. I was
switching from windows to linux and I inserted my boot disk before windows
shutdown. As a result, my boot disk does not work anymore.
I figured that I would upgrade using the same redhat 7.1, change nothing, and
regenerate a boot disk. During this process, I forgot to insert a blank floppy
and the upgrade process locked up. I rebooted (a no-no, I know) and I restarted
the upgrade process. After the upgrade process checks for packages to upgrade,
a message is generated and I cannot proceed past that Point. I am not sure why.
Can you help me? Please?
