Better write VL iso on a CD-R.
Floppy install uses .iso file on hard disk. So you can't wipe everything from it.

No, install is the same if you don't care about other data on the hdd. The rhino doesn't see well, but it isn't it's problem, you know..

No, I don't. Looks like some problem with your .iso or with your cd-rom.

Have you:
1) checked md5sum of downloaded VL image?
2) checked installation files during installation process?

If you tell, what computer and VL version do you use, that'll be nice too.
