Installing Slackware froma usb drive
Hi everyone, Seasons greetings.
I have a compaq armada e-500notebook. The cd-rom drive isnt working but it has a usb port and the floppy drive is working. I currently have windows xp pro installed on it. I'm digust of it ( too much crashes,reboots,spyware etc ). I've been doing some reading about linux for a while now and downloaded slackware 10.2 and I want to install it on my laptop. I have sum experience with linux over the years. I used Redhat 8.0 and Knoppix 3.2 before, on my same laptop when the cd-rom was working. Can anypone please tell me if i can install the os from my usb flash drive (1 gig).Thanlz in advance.
