Second hard drive Linux installation


Ok, I hope I can get some help on this but I'm really not sure if its possible.

I have my main computer, running Windows XP with two harddrives (master/slave). I don't have a CD burner and no floppy disk (don't ask :P). Is it possible for me to download Linux to my 2nd hard drive and install from there? Maybe some Linux version that actually can install through Windows?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Been staring at Windows XP too long, so I figured I'd give this another go.

:P

Wow! I can actually help someone!
Great!

Read the section on "Installing from a spare harddrive" in the linux x86 installation guide.

Redhat 9 manuals found at
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux

they are easily searched, and if you want, you can run XP alongside redhat and configure it to dual boot, like I did. Its much easier than you'd expect. Feel free to email me.

Is there any way to get your hands on a floppy disk drive?

You just made my night. Thank you, thank you....

(filled with cut-and-paste spam)

...thank you


And michaelk, I have one on my machine I just put together, but I screwed up somewhere and dont' want to open it up again. I could take the one from the box I built my girlfriend, but I like the comfort of a bed at night .
