I tried searching for info on this, if you know of a current thread please redirect.
Here is the thing:
I have a really old computer. It is from a school and running Windows NT. The plan is to remove Windows and put a very lightweight Linux distro.
The problem is as follows: (I am using a Ubuntu live disk) I go to the boot manager and have the option to use Floppy, PXE, Hard drive. I put the hard drive last, the CD drive is not accessed since Ubuntu live CD isn't launched.
Further, the problem is that, when I get into Windows NT it has everything disabled, cannot use command prompt, cannot access CD drive etc... all permissions taken away.
I need some advice on what do to as far as getting around this. Further, I was wondering of a very small Linux distro that has little to no GUI. just terminal would be best.
