Need to reformat Ubuntu, but no disk drive


I need to reformat/reinstall Ubuntu on my Dell Mini 9. I am using Ubuntu 8.04. I have the Ubuntu disk, but my computer has no disk drive. Is there another way of going about reinstalling Ubuntu?

hi

assuming you meant optical drive but you have usb ports....

http://www.debuntu.org/how-to-instal...nux-on-usb-bar

or for any usb install
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

2) then boot up the stick after changing bios boot order but I do not use Ubuntu so others or you will know where the installer is
