How do I install Ubuntu on a freshly re-formatted hard-drive? The machine has a CD player but the Ubuntu ISO is on a DVD that the player won't read. The ISO is about 50MB too large for a CD.

What to do?

Thanks. But, that's where I'm stuck. The CD won't read a DVD and the iso is too big to put on a CDR. So, I can only boot from a dos floppy or a system that fits on the CDR. I installed Slax (a small linux system) but can't connect to net with it... –  brt Sep 26 '12 at 21:46
