    A NETBOOK is made to go on the net and make 2 or 3 things like MSN. Play games or install via a CD or DVD, this is impossible.

    The only way is buy a external USB CD/DVD drive. But i don't think so netbook will run any high graphic oriented game effectively.

    Yup i think there is the way but quite illegal. I mean making ISO image and mounting it on virtual drive with daemon tools etc.

    Yes I think its illegal to do such things.
    But I am even more interested knowing how this illegal installation is detected?
    I have seen people installed games in such illegal way & enjoying the fun of free games! I hope this discussion will not be considered as illegal!

    Oh sorry I made a boo-boo!

    That's not illegal. Making an ISO image of a game you own is not illegal. Certain countries (eg. USA) terms & conditions allows people to make ONE or several "backup copies" of their software. The only restriction is that that SOFTWARE can only be ran one at a time at any given time... say you installed it at work.. and also at home...
