Hi,

I want to reinstall xubuntu on my laptop so I can encrypt my
harddrive.  My laptop doesn't have an internal cd-drive and wont boot
from usb.  When I installed xubuntu origionally there was a program
called wubi which put a kernel and an initrd in my windows partition
and that allowed me to boot from the usbcdrom.  I haven't been able to
find out how to make this approach work from linux. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
Geoff.
