Kubuntu noCD install
hi guys, i want to install kubuntu Gutsy (10.7) on my laptop. The catch however, is that the dvdrw drive in my laptop has well and truly reached the end of its lifecycle and now refuses to pick up the cd. I don't have an external drive, and the closest thing to a flash drive i have is my ipod (being a uni student sucks).
I do however, have my ipod (BIOS supports usb booting), the home network has an xp and vista pc on it (BIOS has net booting 2).
This machine is partitioned into a few parts, XP (57G), mandriva2007.1 (18G - This is the one i was hopin to replace with Gutsy) and the swap, which from memory is around 1G. i guess the easiest way would be if i could start the gutsy install from within mandriva and just have it reboot and isntall or something..
Essentially my mandriva install has crapped out, and i want it replaced with gutsy, but havin no cd makes my life hard...
Any ideas would really be appreciated..!
