I totally agree that what you did is clearly the sensible and expedient
way of accomplishing the task. I really dont have much guilt expecting
people to have or use such a thing.

However, I also acknowledge that it would be *nice*, certainly not
necessary, but *nice* to have the USB install as an option.
I do not know how to accomplish it at this time, and I have no
intention of spending the time to find out. However, if someone
*could* figure this out and "contribute" their wisdom (in the form
of an installable package, not just a list of perhaps vague instructions),
it would be of great benefit to everyone (at least potentially).

I have successfully installed onto both of my Dell Inspiron Netbooks model 1018, 1.66 Ghz processor, 2 GB of ram, and a 250 GB SATA II hard drive which I changed out for a 16 GB Solid State Hard Drive. Via a $12.00 external USB CD drive. I gave up on the USB stick method. No hang ups to report, installs went smooth.

It could be that the install program does not recognize the Netbook’s Ethernet adapter. People in that situation have used a USB Ethernet adapter to get started and then, afterwards, you install the driver needed and switch back to the built-in NIC.

 Hello all! Well I am learning linux as we go, and can navigate my way around it pretty good now. My question is has anyone installed the acid.iso onto a netbook (no cdrom drive) yet? I am trying to install onto a Dell Inspiron mini 10, it has a 1.66 Ghz processor, 2 GB of ram, and a 16 GB Solid State Hard Drive. I have downloaded and installed the acid.iso file from the allstar website. I can get the install menu to come up, but I keep getting "error unable to download kickstart file". Anyone else tried doing this yet? The labtop is seeing the usb stick as /dev/sdb1, and I can see the files on there, just not sure where to point it to, to continue the install.
