For that old PC, which can not boot from CD, you can use this HOW TO

 

We all have old PCs and because they only boot from Diskettes or Hard Disk it is really dificult to install new sofware on them.

 

Here is how we can achieve that.

1. Get the SBM (Smart Boot Manager)

wget http://btmgr.sourceforge.net/3.7/sbminst

2. put the execute permissions.

chmod +x sbminst

./sbminst -d /dev/fd0

Now use that diskette to boot your old PC, with your

Damn Small Linux

Xubuntu

Puppy Linux

or your favorite "Lite" linux, and go on with the instalation.
