Mac LC III won't boot into system 7

My Mac LC III powers up then, when it starts to boot, I see the happy mac dude on the screen, then it dissapears. Then it shows a floppy disk with a question mark blinking inside of it... What went wrong and how do I fix it, my motherboard battery is dead and I still need to get a new one, so would that be the problem?
