trying to INSTALL linux from a usb drive
Does anyone know how to install linux from a USB? When trying to google this question, I just get a lot of answers on how to install linux ON a USB. I have a laptop computer who's CD-ROM drive has gone to crap so I was wondering if there's a way to install linux straight off a 1GB pen drive. I have a Linux (Fedora) CD and a Linux boot disk, who's boot sector image I've copied on to the pen drive. So the computer will boot to the pen drive, and I actually have all the files from the first installation CD on the pen drive as well. But there's no command prompt on boot and the options for installing linux are only limited to off the CD-ROM, off the HDD, or off some net connection.
