Check out this page: http://lubi.sourceforge.net/lubi.html
There are downloads and a guide. I am not sure if this will work with mint, but it might, so you should give it a try. Worst case scenario, it doesn't work, so you remove it (it won't wreck your drive because it doesn't use partitioning).

I have read the "check the .iso and burn slowly" advice over and over again, so I tried that off the bat. The live CD got as far as the login screen, and that's it. When there should normally have been a desktop appearing, I got nothing but a black screen. Because I am a bit of a distro-hopper, I decided to give the new openSuSE 11.1 a whirl. I got pretty much the same results, save the black screen -- it flickered periodically with a jumble of colors.
I am not any sort of expert, but does that portend a problem with the latest version of Xorg not being compatible with my hardware? If so, is this something that can be worked around?
That's much in advance for any help that's proffered.
