Hello you all out there. I was able to set up dsl on an old dell pc, pentium4 1gb hd. Was broken for five years, everything seems to work fine now with dsl. I'd loved to run lubuntu on it, since the hardware has the ability and the os gives me some more options. I cannot boot usb or cd, so i have to set up the thing manually. Any ideas?

I don't know anything about lubuntu, but one common option when an OS can't be installed from a physical medium is to use network booting. This will require the BIOS support, a second computer, and a bit of fiddling around.

There's a version of DSL designed for network booting, but you'll have to check what's available for lubuntu.

Did actually work! Setting up the network conn was a bit difficult but possible. Was able to install lubuntu 12.04. Thnx for the tip!
