Thanks for the link. Good information to know for the future, but I think it doesn't apply in my current case since I have not installed Lion on my internal HD yet. My iMac is still running Snow Leopard. Also, the external HD (which worked fine before as a routine backup drive) that I tried to install Lion on never did show up in Preferences>StartUpDisk after the "installation" as a selectable startup disk.

I'm worried now after seeing the strange files on the ex HD, that installing Lion on my iMac will do the same thing-- replace working system files with unbootable installer files.
