This week, the meeting centred around finding a way to install Linux onto a Toshiba notebook owned by Tony.
The notebook has no CD or Floppy drive, and could not be set to boot from USB.
The solution was to take the hard disk out and attach it to another computer, install Linux then put the drive back in the notebook.
An adapter purchased on ebay for a couple of Pounds was used.
A second option was also suggested.
A network (pxe boot) install, using a server to host the distro to be installed.
This might turn out to be a project for the future.
