The second IDE channel on my laptop has died leaving me with no DVD combi drive. I'm using Mandrake 10.1 and I'm wanting to upgrade to a newer distro. Will linux boot from an external USB CDRW drive if I buy one? Failing that is it difficult to boot and Insatll from LAN?
Thanks in adavance
PS please remember I'm a newbie when you reply...cheers!!!!
