Frustrated With Tablet PC Installation
I recently bought a Toshiba Portege M200 tablet PC and it's caused me no end of grief to load linux on it. I would like to load CentOS 5.x (because my hosting company uses it and I will be able to learn as I run it).
Here are my resources:
The tablet does not have a CD-ROM drive.
I found internet resources to create a boot disk that enables me to see my 8GB Sony USB flash drive via DOS. It works nicely.
I have a laptop drive to USB converter and can access the hard drive directly from my Win XP desktop. I have PowerQuest's Partition Magic Pro (v8.0) and can make Ext2 and Ext3 partitions at will. I have also loaded a program that allows Windows XP to read and write from Ext2 and Ext3. It works well.
I have tried loading boot images from PXE. This option is mostly out because it seems to be a couple levels past my competency (I haven't been able to get it to work).
Given those resources, what's the best way to load either the CentOS live CD... or some other approach?
Any help would be appreciated!
