    Linux Mint to Ubuntu

    A few days ago I installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop, completely removing Windows. I can't stand it to be honest and I like what I see about Ubuntu. Is there any way I can burn Ubuntu on a disk and install it while running Linux Mint? or does the process only work on Windows and Mac? Any help is appreciated.

    You can use a Live CD/USB/DVD in any OS as long as you can boot from the optical drive or the USB drive. You could also dual boot or virtualize Ubuntu with VirtualBox or VMWare

    Booting from a USB drive is the optimal method for me, as I have a netbook with no CD drive! Plus it is always handy if a buddy of mine wants to make the linux leap!

    USBs are fasten than CDs/DVDs. I don't have a spare USB though. I have an external drive I could stick a partition in, but my computer cant boot from USB anyway. I'm stuck with CDs (I can't use DVDs either since i can't burn them).
