    Installing Ubuntu Server

    I have an old IBM x61s Laptop, which I need to load Ubuntu Server onto. The laptop has no CD Drive and I do not own an external CD drive, so my question is simple.

    How Can I get Ubuntu Server on there?

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
    Dan.

    Use a USB stick, just make sure to get a big enough one to hold the files. Here's a Google search: http://www.google.com/search?q=usb+u...GGL_en___US232

    I did this with my netbook to install Ubuntu Remix and it worked fine. Just make sure you also have the ability to boot from a USB drive.

    Note: I haven't read any of those, but I'm assuming it's possible with Server Edition since you can with the desktop/netbook editions...

    I spent hours trying to do it from USB, in the end gave up and posted here. Literally just finished installing it. Just thought to put the HDD in my desktop install it on there then move it back across. Works perfectly now
