Beautiful. Thanks. :)

Pitty is, I want to install the latest one, which I suppose will be too complicated and I'll have to do it on a DVD.

But thanks anyway, I'll keep the handy info I need to quick install Linux Mint on any other comp with a pendrive!

No Linux Mint .iso file is larger than 1.6 Gigabytes. Most are less than 700 Meg.-they will fit on a CD so they should fit on a pendrive.
