Few days ago i found my first laptop ever - compaq armada m700, and decided to install lubuntu.
the thing is, i tried to do the installation a bit unconventionally, and now i have a problem to solve...
So while in XP(which i want to get rid off) i made a 2nd partition, formated in FAT32, and burnt the iso image overthere(sda2) . I thought that it will start booting from there(which it did) and then through the installation process i'll wipe out xp(can't get to that part yet.)
So the installation stops at the step where it detects and mounts the cd-rom. it gives me an error saying that it couldn't mount the cd-rom because it was empty(duh!).
i tried to do the following: mount -t /dev/sda2 /sr0 and also: mount -t /dev/sda2 /dev/sr0. Both times it couldn't find sr0 in /etc/fstab.
Please tell me this: if it's not possible to mount like this, how can i redirect the installation process into sda2 where the iso lies?
Please bear in mind that i cannot get into xp anymore(as far as i'm concern), so it looks like i have to do it via busybox, which should be possible and would be really cool!
p.s. i looked in this forum before posting, found some infos but nothing particular to my case... i am asking for some guidance
