I have created a write-up on how to install eCS 2.0RC5 to an EeePC PC701
"netbook" mini-laptop, directly from a USB attached CD or DVD drive. This
is a follow up to my previous article on how to install to a bootable
Secure Digital card used in the PC. This time the internal disk is used.
This write up and the required modified driver patches is presently located
on hobbes.nmsu.edu at:
But will later move to the the /PUB/OS2/DOC directory.
Thanks to all who assisted in making this work.
Note: although this document is specific to the ASUS EeePC PC701 the logic
of how to make eCS 2.0 RC5 install to a machine that only has a USB
attached CD/DVD drive should apply to all such systems.
