hi
i need to install ubuntu on a PIII laptop of which the cdrom drive is bad

the laptop does not support booting from external usb cdroms


in windows world i would have removed the laptop hard disk and
connected it to other pc
make it bootable and transfer the setup cab files on to it , put it
back on the laptop and run setup


but i a dont know how it can be done in linux

can i connect this hard disk to some other machine install ubuntu and
then put it back in the laptop and then would ubuntu re-detect all the
hardware

or any other idea
help ??

thanks
regards
