First, thanks for the responses. I only have a CD-RW with maximum storage of 700MB. I hope Ubuntu v11.10 will fit since it is something like 695MB. I only have one USB stick and it is mainly used for storage of various stuff, including all the downloaded apps and such. So, I really don't want to be messing with making the USB a "bootable" device. With any luck I can copy v11.10 to CD and make it a bootable cd. Wish my luck. Again, thanks.
