b) I have created a linux boot floppy and after booting from it how do i mount the external dvd drive which is HP dvd300e and then how to run the linux setup from there.
You don't say what you downloaded, and what you're burning to DVD. If you downloaded the .ISO image, look somewhere in Nero, for an option to burn an ISO image. That will burn the DVD correctly, and it will be bootable.
The (B) option in your scenario won't work, since you didn't burn the ISO image correctly to start with. The needed files/filestructure isn't there.
