    How to install linux on a slave with no cd....


    Bit of an odd one this...


    I have two hard drives on my system, the Master is a 40gb that has windows and all personal files/programs..

    the Slave had a previous windows install, is now formatted, empty, and partitioned into a 15gb and a 25gb....

    I wanted to install linux onto the slave, to see if I could deal with using linux before getting rid of windows altogether.

    However, I don't have a cd writer, nor do I have a floppy drive...

    What I'm asking is two questions really- is there anyway to install linux through windows, or at least from the master onto the slave in DOS....

    Also, is there a linux that I can download and install without the need for CD's???

    If this has already been asked sorry, did have a look in the forums to see if it had been addressed already.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Can't you just borrow a CD-ROM/CD-RW from a friend? That would make things so much easier..

    I don't think you can't install anything without a CDROM or a previous install of Linux.
