Despite what the jumpers tell you on the backs of the drive, provided the BIOS has found them, then it'll give you the option to pick the boot device by name (unless your main board is extremely old). Just take a look through your bios for the right boot device option. Some give you the option to boot hdd/optical/fdd/usb and then force you to select the actual device from a selection of those it found in a separate list (my eee pc does this) so be prepared to hunt around for it.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

If this system will boot from USB, then use Unetbootin to create a bootable LiveUSB drive from the DVD or ISO image of the DVD, then boot from that and install the OS as you wish.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
