Installing off download to new drive; With a twist
Some one gave me an older Windows machine and I had to put a hard drive into it. It is formatted and partitioned with nothing on it. I plan on installing Ubuntu 6.0.6. My only way to download the distro is thru my iMac. The files come in as iso's,
and I have been trying to use Discribe to format a readable CD to boot off of. I've tried 3 different writing schemes thru Discribe and the last, a Mac/Iso hybrid, did nothing when inserted in the computer for start up. I've also opened the iso and copied that to a CD with no results. So what is the bios looking for? Do I have to install DOS to get this thing running thru a file upload? The computer is a Dell that originally had a service edition of 98 on it but I don't have the disk. can you help with the procedure?
