Windows 3.0 clean install

I'm ashamed to ask, but how would I go about installing Windows 3.0 (yes, 3.0 not 3.1) on a formatted hard drive? I've got windows 3.0 floppy disks 1-7 but no DOS disks, I tried installing windows from the floppies after booting the computer with a Windows ME startup disk and although it worked, I found that I was unable to boot windows up without the floppy, I think this is because windows 3.0 is just a GUI over DOS and does not contain DOS. I haven't got any DOS installation disks. The computer is a Laptop, the hard disk is 80Mb, it ran Windows 3.0 originally.
