    Question New to Linux, trying to remove XP and install SuSE

    I apologize in advance for being clueless!

    Currently I have XP installed on my laptop, but I want to remove it and replace it with SuSE, but I have no idea how to do so. At the moment I can't even use my laptop unless I'm on safe mode, so I'm looking for the easiest way to do this. Also, is it possible to do via usb?

    Sorry again for being a novice but I've only ever played around with ubuntu and I'm not that great with computers. Thanks.

    Are you saying you don't have a CD drive?

    The easiest way to get a usb boot device is to use this:
    UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads

    Whatever distribution you end up using, just let it use the whole HD and windows will be gone.

    Of course you must have a USB boot enabled motherboard to boot with USB

    Yeh a CD drive is kinda essential, although a USB bootup disk works too.
