The boot floppy that is created from the Win-Me setup CD does have CD support, as does those from Win98 and Win98-SE.

The CD driver is a generic one, and supports almost all, but not every CD drive. I am sure the same is true with the boot disk downloaded from boot I once had a notebook that needed a specific CD driver that I had to download, and create my own variant of the boot floppy.
