GRUB Help, Installing onto netbook
I need to install Linux on my netbook, but it has no optical drive and no OS on it at the moment. I have my main computer (running windows), a 128 mb flash drive and a 4g external hard drive. I've tried to start off by installing a small distro (puppy linux) on the flash drive (which works, and I can boot from it without any problems), however I can't get it to install onto the netbook itself! I figure once I have an OS on the PC I can install a bigger distro no problem by copying the files off of my external hard drive.
So the only solution I can think of is to install GRUB on the 128mb flash drive, boot it from the flash drive and from there boot up onto the external hard drive (with my distro installed on it). Is this possible? Any other solutions are much appreciated D:
I am a complete linux/grub/etc. newbie and have no idea how to get this working XD
