Yes! Your 2.4.6 vmlinux.coff booted from floppy without problems.

My nvsetenv output is below; all values are at their defaults, except
for the obvious tweaks to auto-boot?, input-device, and output-device.

little-endian?  false
real-mode?      false
auto-boot?      false
diag-switch?    false
fcode-debug?    false
oem-banner?     false
oem-logo?       false
use-nvramrc?    true
real-base       0xffffffff
real-size       0x100000
virt-base       0xffffffff
virt-size       0x100000
load-base       0x4000
pci-probe-list  0xffffffff
screen-#columns 0x64
screen-#rows    0x28
selftest-#megs  0x0
boot-device     /AAPL,ROM
diag-device     fd:diags
input-device    kbd
output-device   /bandit/ATY,264VT
nvramrc         ' byte-load-file d na+  ' or  blpatch  ' byte-load-file? d na+  ' or  blpatch
boot-command    boot
