  1. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    Use and external CD/DVD drive. For the LAN installation, you need a RIS server, that, i assume, you don't have.
  2. You'd need some kind of PXE (preboot execution) and a TFTP server, is 1 way I can think of if you can't boot your OS.

    Are you sure the CD is damaged, not just the OS?
