I have a Dell Inspiron 1210 with Hardy Heron 8.04 installed from factory, Intel Atom N520 processor, 32GB SS HDD & 1GB RAM. I've kept up with updates (excepting Dell-specific files--no current source.). I like to learn about Ubuntu/Linux but I want to upgrade, if possible, to NetBook v10.10.

The process says to load the program on a CD (none in netbook) or USB thumb/stick drive (2GB or larger) by going to <System/Administration/Startup Disk Creator>. But my <System/Administration/> has no <Startup Disk Creator>, probably thanks to Dell. Can I make the upgrade? If so, how can I get "Startup Disk Creator"?

Thanks so much for your help and advice!
