Install to a thumb drive?
Hi! A brand newbie here. My son-in-law gave me a Panasonic Cf Y2 Toughbook with a dead HD. I looked online as to how to install a new one and it's waaaaayyyy too much work. I'm not afraid to pull it apart but the HD is buried deep in the computer's guts. So, the next best solution is to add an OS externally either via CD, DVD, or Thumb Drive. I bought a Lexar 128GB thumb drive which should be sufficient to install Linux on although I might switch an install on a CD and use the thumb drive for data. Anyhow, my question is, How do I download and Install Linux Directly to the thumb drive. Oh, and which version should I use? Thanks
