install linux without cd or floppy
I'd like some expertise here
I have a laptop (old dell PII thing) and I want to install linux on it BUT I don't have the cd rom player neither the floppy disk.
All I could use is a 265 Mg usb key, and a network connection.
I'd like to install debian or red hat, but it looks like in any case a reboot is necessary, and then I'll be facing the eternal question, where do I get the installation working from.
thanks to all for your help top my first quetion on linuxformums.org.
