Could you post the exact error messages (copy and paste?)?
Although it might be obvious, the way you wrote here dpkg -i makes me
wonder whether in your command line you typed dpkg-i or dpkg -i? Note
there is a white space character in the second dpkg -i.
You might also consider copying the files from the floppy to the disk
in order to get things to run a bit more quickly.
