From your other thread that got closed,

What's the method of booting ???
USB device, like a thumb drive. The installation guide tells you how to do it. I recommend you read the entire guide before you start.

By the way, why don't you want to use CD's?

Just out of curiosity, I'm wondering the same thing. Why don't/can't you burn CDs?

straying off topic, he offers his (biased) opinion:

Don't embark on the great Linux adventure without two things:
1. A basic CD read/write drive
2. A high-speed connection

The very best distros now are the ones that do a basic install from a CD and then get everything else from the net.

Yeah, continuing off topic, I thought at first he didn't have a CD drive, but then I read his post again and realized he just didn't want to use CD's. If he has WinXP, he probably has a CD drive. High-speed connection maybe not, but he's got the .iso images so I say burn 'em. What's a CD cost, a nickle?

I just figured maybe it was an experiment or something.
