I found an old red hat linux boot floppy that I had kicking around. I forgot I even had it and don't know if I could find the install disks.
The comp will try and boot from the floppy though. I'm pretty sure that my new comp doesn't have any way to hook up an ide floppy drive so I probably can't make one for Ubuntu. If I have to I will open up the new comp and see.
Could I install red hat, assuming I have the disks and then install ubuntu over top of that once i get the linux comp up and running?
Or I am making things way too complicated and should just give up?
