I am guessing that he is asking how to do it without a USB drive is because he does not have a cd driver either... correct me if I am wrong... if that is the case, then the best bet is to go to your local department store, and pick up a cheap usb drive... I would recommend a 2gb sandisk cruzer, as it is cheap (about 10 US dollars) and I know that they are bootable... Of course you would have to use a program like unetbootin to get Ubuntu onto your flash drive. – TheXed Jan 19 '11 at 1:43
Yes, you're right. I have misunderstood everything. But I guess he can't boot from usb and that's why he's asking. So I have editted my answer to point to non-cd non-usb ways of installing it. There are probably quite a few more. – luri Jan 19 '11 at 2:00
