Hi,

I put together a HOWTO a few months ago but it was lost when the new forums were setup! ;-{

the key thing was to copy the elive .iso file to a designated partition via the below command:

cat cdrom.iso > /dev/hda4

in the above example the .iso file is copied directly to the first hard disks 5th
partition.

the command fdisk -l

should reveal the partitions on your system.

boot off a Gujin floppy/hardisk and select elive

that's how I got elive going on a small sony vaio laptop that doesn't have a cd-rom drive.

hope the above helps, I know it's brief.

John
