WAIT After re-reading. . . it said to use a USB external DVD. . . I have one of those. . . think that would work with the CD version as well? I have CD's already for the cd version. . .

I would suggest checking your notebook's compatibility with booting
from a USB device, ie. external dvd.
Or use PXE as stated, although USB dvd is much easier and less time
consuming for only one machine.

As for installing on a different system and then swapping drives, just
make sure you are using a similar enough machine(same architecture
