    laptop doesn't have a floppy drive. I may have a cd that will do it. haven't taken the time yet to inventory the cd's I have.

    Whatever would I do if I lived in a perfect world?

    I have semi-success. I can boot, successfully, into Ubuntu from the USB drive. I can boot, successfully, into Windows with the usb drive disconnected, and the system doesn't even look for the linux. NOW--I can't seem to get my network card to work. When I had the grub installed on the mbr, the internet connection worked. Now it's not working, and it configured when I installed it.

    Network Card has nothing to do with MBR or GRUB. try to configure it again.

    When I go into the Network settings, I don't get to specify a gateway. With tcpip in Windows, I have to tell it which gateway to use. It found the dns server, but I really don't see much to configure here.

    Got it--sitting here typing from Firefox via Ubuntu on a usb hard drive connected to my laptop.

    Man, I feel GOOD!

    And no, I have no idea what I did. I just rebooted; that seems to solve a lot of problems, whatever OS you run.
