Hi Thomas,
Many thanks for the link!
However, I don't have any Linux operating system installed on that machine 
previously. From what I have read somewhere is that you can put the 
installation CD/DVD into the drive, wait for the installer to boot and then 
type a command that will get an IP address from the local network and then 
you can connect to that IP from another computer through telnet and once the 
connection is established the installation process will begin. Its not 
secure, but is that possible?
All the best and thanks,
