My, that's a long subject line.

How about a small partition on the hard drive with the flash disk
image on it? I've not tried it, though. Getting it there and making it
bootable will be the trick. I'd use tomsrtbt. Don't forget to mark the
partition as bootable.
Then an external DVD/CD drive or hard drive should do you. Your
computer is probably old enough that its USB port is USB 1.x. If so,
the installation will be slow.
