The error is not related to the fact that you use floppies. From the info 
you give here we cannot really say what the problem is.

Can you please try the installation again and, after the error, send us the 
files "hardware-summary" and "syslog" from the directory /var/log/?
You will need to use the option "Save debug logs" from the main menu of the 
installer to get these files.


P.S. Next time, please file an installation report:
