I found the page https://www.lifewire...y-steps-2202093

 

It describes only how to create a USB drive for installation.

 

I have a legacy IBM ThinkCentre PC which can't boot from a USB.

 

It can, however, boot from DVD.

 

Currently, there is nothing on this PC. I want to do a fresh install.

 

How do I install on such a system?

burn an iso on cd/dvd.  at boot do the bios thing so that it first boots from whatever your cd/dvd drive is.  reboot with the disc in and it will work - done it many times before and never an issue.

In the past I have used Plop boot manager to successfully install Bodhi on machines with no usb boot.

Here is the installation instructions page

http://www.bodhilinu...n-instructions/

It explains how to put an ISO onto a DVD.

If that doesn't work for you, post back with as much info as possible and we'll try to help you get it sorted.

I would second burning a Plop image to a cd, if only to have it in your "toolkit". The interesting bit is if you run across a laptop without a cd/dvd but with a floppy drive. Plop still works. You just have to figure out how to get the image on said floppy. :P Heck, you have to find a floppy to put the image on. :)
