Network less install...


I plan on doing a networkless install of Ubuntu and then isntall a driver for my NIC (which, evidently, is not supported >.< )


How should I go about? Please be detailed as my last installed messed up somehow


I _do_ have a bootloader so I don't thnk GRUB or LILO is necessary

1. Burn Ubuntu ISO to a disk.
2. Boot your computer with that disk.
3. Install Linux.
4. Get your hands on the driver you need for your NIC.
5. If necessary, put the driver on a floppy or cd.
6. Copy the driver from the floppy or cd to your system in /tmp.
7. Install your driver.
8. Do something like: # ifconfig eth0 up 192.168.1.11 << your ip address here or you do: # dhclient eth0 if you want a dynamic ip address.
9. If you don't get an error message, most likely everything is fine.

According to what you asked this has been answered to the best of my ability. If you need to know something in here specific, please post your detailed question here.

Were you able to confirm that your NIC was installed and configured properly before getting this far?

Sure, but what I meant was: Was it properly installed and configured with your OS?
