friend of mine dropped off an old Acer Travelmate 240 (2.8 celeron, 256mb DDR2 etc) old laptop to potentially be salvaged as a facebook portal. It currently has XP home on it installed still from like 2003.
When i re-arrange the boot media order so i can try and boot from CD, it just seems to ignore the CD drive. like, i'll put CD on the top, then removeable media, then network book then hard drive. I have tried with both normal CD drive, an external CD drive plugged in AND a USB stick with ubuntun10.10 on it and nothing is recognised. The only thing that seems to get a response is checking for LAN boot which obviously fails because i haven't set that up.
HALP PLZ? either we can try and troubleshoot the media thing, or we can try and set up install over network but i literally have NO idea how to do that.
