It takes a lot of time to write the disks and a lot to boot the setup, and you better not make any mistake while switching disks or you can have fun starting it all over again.
Depending on your location you may not find floppies anymore.
And *most* drives nowadays are external USB which cost almost as much as a CD/DVD drive and don't work on old machines with limited or no USB support.
So I'd choose CD/DVD anyday.
May the source be with you!
