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

then put it back in the laptop and then would ubuntu re-detect all the

or any other idea
