I know this is a month old post, but nobody has responded to you yet. At least from I know, my Mac 5400 (about same motherboard) cannot boot from a system lower than 7.6, I thought. 7.6 has to be booted from a CD not a floppy. Any system divided up on floppies would probably be older than 7.6 and wouldn't work on your computer. I may be wrong, but that is what I thought.

I was trying to do something similar and that was to get something bootable on my Mac 5400 through using Windows. From what I've gathered scouring the internet 15+ years back and later is that to make a bootable disk for a Mac OS operating system, Toast must be used, and unfortunately, it looks like only the older Toast (version 4 or 5 that only runs on Mac OS and Power PC processors) program would be able to do it.

What is needed to make a bootable Mac disk is as follows:
A PPC macintosh (non-intel based);
Running OS 7.6-9-1
Toast 4-5
CD drive that can burn a disk

Otherwise you'll have to buy a bootable disk. I've seen them for about $20 on Ebay for OS 9.0. Then you boot up by pressing down and holding C when powering the machine on. I wish you luck, it can be a pain trying to figure issues out with these computers being most of the information regarding troubleshooting issues continues to dwindle online.
