If I understand it.... You want to install OS without CD... Only one way, if you have Windows Server 2003 (or any OS with RIS service) on another machine and hook them up in network. You would also need RIS (Remote Installation Service) running and configured. Then, if you have the option of booting via LAN (Intel boot agent, PXE ROM, Remote Boot disk) in your BIOS, you should set it up so it boots using LAN.

That is the general info. I don't have details, for I never installed OS that way.

If you already have ISO images, and don't have burner, I suggest that you buy the burner for $30 - $50 (maybe lower). Much better investment.

Are you able to burn the CDs?
Do you have the working optical drive on that machine?
Is there another machine available?

I suppose that the ISO images are on your HD. You would need to take out that HD and put it in some machine that has the burner and burn those ISOs to CDs. Make sure that those are bootable ISO Images. Most of burning software (PowerISO, for example) displays if the image is bootable.
After that put that HD back and boot with CD. You will need to change your booting sequence in your BIOS.

What you can try is to use Ubuntu on a virtual machine.
Its a good option if you have enough resourcees to run one. (i.e VirtualBox, Virtual PC 2007, VMware)

When you burn ISOs you dont do it like files. There special. Use a tool called DeepBurner (free version available) and choose Burn ISO.

There are burning softwares that override the copyright protection... It is on the edge of legal. You will have to "fend for yourself" there.

Although, it shouldn't prevent you from burning unprotected images.

There are lens cleaner disks. Cheap. I recommend Phillips, dry brush + doesn't need to be read. It has a replaceable brush on the inner edge.

No... once you do it will only get more dirt. Trust me, I've tried it. I opened it and cleaned the lens, using alcohol and cotton, it was clean for a while, but after a week or so it got dirty again. Had to open it again because the dry brush CD lens cleaner wasn't effective any longer. You don't want to open it every week. Lens cleaner CD is the best option. Once you use it, you will have working burner for next couple of weeks.. no dismantling necessary.

unbuntu is free and we are encouraged to share it ,so no reason to write protect it.

I don't understand days of conversation about a bad cd-rw ,when you could just go buy a new one .here in canada i can but a LG 18x dvd -rw ,for 39.99 or less ,go out and get a Paper Route and buy a new drive and save yourself all this grief!lol
