Instlinux for Mint?

Postby Husse » Sun Apr 15, 2007 7:52 am

There is a Windows program called instlinux that lets you install Linux from within Windows, a great idea. The downside is that it is specific for a distro and tries to install a really old Ubuntu if you select the Ubuntu version.
I t would be nice to have that for Mint.
It's released under GPL and I'll take a look and see if I can "reverse engineer" and adapt if for Mint

cool :D
Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.

They have one of these for feisty fawn, but its not based on instLinux.

Just google "Ubuntu Windows installer"

Could we adjust that one to be used with Mint?
Also discovered that I don't have some decent editor in Linux (have some in XP, but I don't want to use XP)
