Installing linux on a computer only bootable from hard disk
My dad had received an old PIII computer which he wants to use as an internet computer. I figured linux is the best option.
Problem is, It cannot be booted from anything other than the hard drive, the BIOS looks blocked from all the boot features.
I was wandering if it was a good idea to connect the hard drive to a different computer and install linux from there, then putting it back.
My question is whether it will mess up the linux setup? Installing it with one set of hardware and then putting it in a totally different computer?
