Hi.  No, that won't work.

My question is, since the installer isn't working with orca yet. If I copy the content of the live CD to a blank hard drive with a fat 32 partition would the computer boot from it that way?

At least this would get a few people going with ubuntu, and they could re install later on a linux partition if they wanted to. I think one or two of the computers may still have windows 98 in them, so in those cases I can install inside windows. But I'm sure most of them have been formatted.
