How-to install without CD?
 
Dear Xubuntu

I would like instructions on how to install Xubuntu 8.10 from an iso
image that is on my hard drive.
Also, if it matters, which ISO image would I need to download....
Desktop CD or Alternate install CD... in order to accomplish this?

I was able to do this for Puppy Linux. Unzipped iso to C:, added grldr
and menu.lst to C:oot.images folder, modified boot.ini adding
C:GRLDR="Puppy Menu".
That made a "frugal install". From there you can do normal/full install
to another hard drive/partition.

That's what I'm looking to do with your Xubuntu. Puppy Linux was awful.

I'm running Windows 2000pro btw. 866PIII, 512ram.
I'd like to put Xubuntu on hda3 (I:)

Thank you
Deemarie

Hi,
Take a look here - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation
However this is not the correct place to come for general xubuntu help, try
the forums ubuntuforums.org.

Hi,

Take a look here - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation

However this is not the correct place to come for general xubuntu help, try

the forums ubuntuforums.org.


Or better, try the xubuntu-users mailinglist: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/xubuntu-users

Anyway, it sounds like you're looking for Wubi, see http://wubi-installer.org/ You need the Desktop CD for that.

Cheers,

SORRY I won't do it again. I didn't see a Xubuntu forum. I assumed
ubuntu was not xubuntu. Diff names and all.
thanks

You can install Xubuntu (or any other Ubuntu or some other Linux
distributions) by using USB flash drive (1GB or bigger)
with: unetbootin
http://sourceforge.net/projects/unetbootin/
It can be used to make bootable USB drive out of .ISO image
and it works under Linux or windows for USB preparation.
It is fine GUI program, Just wait for data to be written on flash drive.

There is also universal unetbootin and customized for certain distributions.
It can also both do downloading of distribution files for making
bootable usb disk or use already downloaded .iso

Hi, I have my doubts, that this will work:

===cite on===
I'm running Windows 2000pro btw. 866PIII, 512ram
===cite off===

This hardware will most likely not boot from usb, also there is a good
chance that it only has usb 1.1, which would be an endlessly long
torture, if it booted.

Deemarie,

If usb-boot will not work for you, this could help you along.

Be warned: Puppy Linux is easier to boot from iso.

But as you said, Xubuntu will most probably much better care for your
everyday computer experience:

Wouldn't WUBI work? I've used it on several xp and vista machines. Made
installation quite easy. Just map a folder to i: name it ubunutu and
install there?
