Download an OS (like Linux) onto a totally erased hard drive.
Some one I know nuked the hard drive of an old computer. I got my hands on it and now I would like to turn it into a server (or just a plane old PC), but I don't know any way of downloading anything onto it in that pretty-much-nothing-on-it state. I would like to download an OS (like Linux) to make it easier to download and program things. Any Ideas?
