    They are cheap - > $100. Is this a desktop or laptop computer? How old is it?

    When you go into the boot menu, do you see an option to boot from a USB device? If so, if you have family/friends that have a DVD-RW drive, you can copy the install DVD to a USB flash drive. Saves having to shell out for a DVD drive.

    Just make sure the USB flash drive is a minimum of 4 GB - they are cheap too.

    I would recommend using a USB drive, if your PC can do USB boot which I bet it would. That's probably the best way. A DVD drive for a desktop generally runs about 20 dollars and up.
