Ok, Heres the deal.
I just started using linux about a week ago (and I havn't had all that much time to really learn it yet)
I am wondering if there is a way to Install an Iso image without burning the image onto a cd first. I had heard that there was a way to "burn" the image on to a flash drive. My problem is that I don't have one large enough to accommodate a DVD iso image. Normally I wouldn't mind burning the image to disk, but as I have not used the laptop that I loaded linux onto in about 5 years...and it was 5 years old at that point, well, the dvd-rom doesn't work anymore, It only has a cd-rw drive.
Well at any rate, if there is anyone who has a solution to my problem (technical problem, not my rambling problem) I would very much appreciate any input you can provide.
