SOmething that I have been able to do to get people to try Linux is have them go to the WUBI website & download the installer from there, then as you may know the WUBI installer downloads an Ubuntu .iso image & then installs Ubuntu without the need to burn a CD. Now since Mint doens't have then sadly these people who I get to use WUBI will not use meant as easilly as they will Ubuntu, so I was wondering if the Mint people could create a Mint4Win installer that people could download from the internet that retrieves an iso image from the web so that people who want to go that rout won't even have to burn a CD?

I know a lot of people that would try Mint if it had that.

Might not be too hard as mint4win resorts to this behaviour in some cases
I'll add this to the suggestions forum

It's in the live cd.
Also you could mount the iso in windows and copy the exe to the same folder as the iso.

It will download the iso just like Wubi.
I'll ask clem what he thinks of sticking a link for mint4win.exe.
I'm not sure but he may have been waiting for the releases to come out as finals.
