The biggest installation trouble of all times: No possibility to boot from cd-rom, floppy, anything!
I can be considered a linux newbie. But my notebook is the worst one of all times. My cd-rom is broken. It does not have floppy drive. I purchased an external USB one. But it does not boot from it. I purchased PCMCIA-USB card from it should boot. Still it does not seam to boot from anything... I do not know why. (If somebody knows how to make it bootable I will really appreciate it). I am sure the problem is in BIOS, but I have the latest one installed.
question: I do have Boot Magic installed. So I can boot from different partitiones using Boot Magic. I alreday created ext2 and fat32 partitiones. Is there any way I can put some files on one of these partitiones, so I can boot from, and manually(from the command line) find the CD-ROM, and further install SUSE distribution. Or basically, how can I get to the command line, while booting from one of the partitiones?
What files do I have to poot onto the partition I would like to boot from?
I am stuck. I really need help. Already spent tons of money on external CD-ROM and PCMCIA. (I am not sure if the internal cd-rom change will help in this situation).
