    Install linux from a hard drive. (help needed)


    I'm a novice ubuntu user. I've been using it for something like 2 years. I know my way around rather well. But I can't get the hang of making things bootable.

    I am thinking about getting a dvd image and sticking it on a hard drive I have. (a 10GB) and booting my computer from that hard drive to install my OS of choice to my new 160 GB drive.

    The Reason I want to do this Is because I don't have a DVD or CD burner, But as I mentioned i have a spare HDD. So I Have the image I want to use. but I have no idea how to format the drive to be bootable and to boot the image.

    I would also appreciate some help configuring my settings to dual boot the new and current hdd's

    Any useful tips? Step by step would be nice.

    Thanks much

    Do you mean you can't burn CD's/DVD's or that you don't have a software to burn it?
