I am a newbie @ linux and I LOVE IT. I love Ubuntu and I love to love it. Everything works well with my P4@2.40Ghz and Ati Raden HD 3650 AGP.
But as I got so in love with ubuntu I try all the peps around to use it. The most receptive till now was my almost 5 years old nephew. (Of course, with Qimo installed in LYNX to catch him). The problem is the other machine is also P4 but 1.60 with 512 RAM and a da*n SIS board. With a SIS onboard video card. I didn't knew the issue about SIS not supporting at all LINUX. Ubuntu 10.04 works pretty good on kid's pc. But He uses it most of the times for videos. And even if videos in firefox are ok while small, as soon as full screened everything freezes for ages. And if is not, is just soooo9 damn slow. maximum 2 frames/second. Is more like a slideshow. A bad one...
The thing is I don't want to invest in a video card now. And still want to keep ubuntu on it. And install windows 2000 as alternative OS only for when he wants online TV or downloaded movies. I run out of CD's (but mostly is a challenge, 'cos tomorrow I can have CD's anyway...) and I want to install winddows 2000 next to ubuntu FROM .ISO that is already saved in that PC.
What I did:
With the live cd, I resized the space. The hdd is a 20 gb old one. Now I kept 9 Gb for ubuntu and the rest I formated it with NTFS and the same live CD and GParted.
Now I am stuck and would appreciate your help in this. Can I install windows in that system from the .iso file downloaded today? Without CD?
I do have several USB thumbs. But the BIOS can't see them. Because is 2002 and it seems I can't upgrade it.
Thanks so much for your patience reading my "story" and thanks for your help. (Pleaseee?)
