?Are you able to get the machine to boot by USB? If you can just use Unetbootin to create a bootable USB drive with your Lubuntu ISO image.

Subject: Lubuntu cd under 700mb?

Hello, I have an old xp machine that I wanted to convert to linux and since I like Debian based /apt package management I wanted to try Lubuntu. My issue is that the machine only has a cd drive and the Lubuntu disc (which I downloaded from here several times: and it is 705mb every time and won't on a 700mb. Are there any files on the image that can be further compressed? Maybe using 7z ultra compression. I only need to lose 5 mb. I can't afford a dvd drive atm and it's not really worth it for me to get one anyone as I have other Linux machines already. Thanks in advanced for any help.
