I'm in the process of reinstalling a (very) old machine that doesn't have a DVD drive (CD only) and I'm running into problems getting the over-sized ubuntu image to fit on a CD. Unfortunately the motherboard doesn't support boot from USB, so that isn't an option.
Is it possible to get a full ubuntu 9.10 distro up and running from the minimal CD? can anyone offer advice or suggestions on how to do this?
I understand what the minimal CD and where I get it, but once I've burnt it, is there any easy way to get back to an equivalent of the standard ubuntu iso?
