Windows XP/Linux Mint Dual Boot

Postby Nanami on Fri Apr 24, 2009 11:34 am

I just purchased an Acer Aspire One Netbook and would like to set it up to dual boot Windows XP (pre-installed) and Linux Mint.
My netbook does not have a DVD drive, so I'm unable to do this via disc. Does anyone know of any way to do with via USB?
Any help or linkage is much appreciated.

TIA


(P.s. I've checked around the net, but can't seem to find any GOOD step by step instructions for this...)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
