Linux on Toshiba M200 Tablet PC - No bootable CDROM
Ladies and Gents,
I have a Toshiba M200 tablet PC whihc has an intrinsic error in that it lacks a CDROM. I can add one via pcmcia, but for some reason, after the initial boot, this drive is no longer readable. I have this issue with the restore disk and also a bootable CD/DVD.
All of those problems aside, is there a way that I can install or mount Linux (any distribution) from a second computer if I have the Laptop hard drive connected via USB to the second computer?
With windows, you need to have all the hardware for the install to work, but with linux can i image the drive with basic drivers so that it will also have a boot sector?
If this is possible, since I am very new to linux, can you explain how I might be able to do this from within a windows environment on a second computer?
