I'd like to try out VL on my Compaq Mini 110, which ‒ of course ‒ doesn't have a CD drive. While not a complete ignoramus, "boot from USB stick" is something I've only vaguely heard about <g>.
  • question 1. Is this the way to go here? if so, how do I set about it?
  • question 2. or how about plugging into the network and pointing a browser to the VL Downloads page … but then what?
Thanks in advance for patient advice here!

Check out this tutorial:

Quick tip/shortcut: I have got this to work simply by using a downloaded image and using unetbootin, then renaming the "init.lz" file to "init.gz" (in /isolinux).
