net.exe supports TCP/IP as transport :
when you generate a client disk from a NT machine, you have choice between
Netbeui, IPX, TCP/IP and more... choose TCP/IP.
We tried connect from a floppy disk booted computer using this to a samba
server : it works... and the size is less than 1 Mb !!!

Perhaps you should look a such generated floppy...
