I acquired a laptop at work that was donated by some company and I would like to try the EL5 (that the current version?) of K12LTSP on it.

The problem is, there is no floppy drive and it has a battery in the CD slot and I don't have a CD-ROM that will fit in there and connect up. (crappy Dell with the caddy thing).

Is there a way to install EL on it from the web or something? It currently has WindersXP on it. That is outta here if I can get EL on it.

Any ideas?

One option would be to pull the drive and put it in another computer and do the install and then put it back in the original. What caveats will I run into with this method?

Thanks for the help!
