Think about having a .msi or Nullsoft installer, just as though you've 
downloaded Winamp etc.

You click install and verify that this may damage your computer.

The computer reboots, and when ti comes up, it auto starts into a Linux RAM 
disk. Neato! From here, you can install it, with the packages being 
downloaded off the net.

The only problem is, how do you get Windows to boot from the hibernation file, 
and what is the format of that...?
