First of all keep in mind - english my not native language.
1) I did try to install the "VL6.0-STD-Gold" from FAT16 partition. The problem is loader display quickly many many dots and then reboot my FreeDOS everytime. One year before by the same method I did successful boot the ZipSlack and Pygmylinux.
2) GUI installer won't run. As I remember, there is something wrong with initrd. MD5 checksum correct!
Only thanks to console installer I did install the VL.
