Booting from CD, install from USB?
Hoi girls n guys,
i've got a problem which i am unable to solve, searched the web and the forums already but couldn't find anything related to it.
The Problem ... :
i've got an old laptop ( can not boot from usb ) on which i try to install openSuSE 10.2, i have got the installation dvd but the laptop hasn't got a dvd drive. so i've created an image, copied it to my usb stick, downloaded the mini-boot-image, burned it to cd, plugged the stick in, booted from cd, everything fine until i have to specify the installation source. now i hit "alt + f9" but i can't mount the usb device.
( i tried mount -t usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb ) and get the error message: "Cannot read /etc/fstab", well no surprise it ain't there.
Is what i'm trying possible at all? Or should i download 3.16 GB again, this time as CDs? [ i had the dvd-image before i got the laptop ... ]
Edit: It hasn't got a network card aswell ...
cheers for your help.
