Okay, I have an old old old OLD Gateway computer with a 1.4 GB hdd that when I got it was running windows 95 :(
Today I just received in the mail of copy of Ubuntu Server Edition and Figured I could install it on the old computer and use it as a Mail Server for my home network. The only problem is that the computer does not have a CD drive and at the moment does not have access to the internet.....Any ideas as to how I could still install ubuntu server?

If you have another installation of Ubuntu running on a different PC, you can turn the CD into a bootable usb stick with the Create a USB Startup disk in Intrepid, or look up unetbootin (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=222386) for Windows/linux
