install etch from usb onto xp machine
Anybody recently installed to an xp machine with no CD drive?
I followed the "easy way" instructions for copying the necessary Etch
installation files to a USB, but the XP machine would not "see" the
Then I followed the "install-mbr" instructions to make the usb
bootable. But that appears to wipe out the installation files? All
the XP machine did was print "MBR" and sit there.
I can't really log into the XP machine, the tech fellows just
installed a separate hard drive and said I could put Debian on it.
Getting it on there is up to me :)
Any easy way to make the XP machine see the usb drive, boot from it,
and do an install?
Thanks for any help.
