    Install iso 8.04 from another linux distro?

    I tried the Live Cd installation, got the initram error. iso says it was burned ok, but I am not sure it really fits on a CD. Anyway, I don't think the live CD will work unless maybe you burn on a dvd and I do not have a dvd burner. On the other hand, I already have another(2) linux distributions on my machine and no windows, so windows installation is not an option.
    What I want to do is download the iso on my Slack system and try to install from there, with full control over what partition to use and so on.
    If I can do that, I'll give hardy a go. Can anyone point me to the right instructions as how this is to be done? I looked briefly at the live cd and see some exes, which seems to indicate that this is geared to windows users.
    Or is it possible to install from a linux box too?

    try this first http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

    In any case you can't install in the same partition where theres the filles of the cd,the installer insists in formating.
