Okay, I think I've seen enough to know that I don't want or need ChromeOS. I'd strongly prefer just a pure *buntu install.

So I'm now trying to figure out if I can manipulate its pseudo-*buntu install to become its only OS. In other words, use what's already there instead of needing a downloaded copy of *buntu on a...not disc, since the Chromebook has no disc drive, and I don't have any spare USB sticks...something.

gParted shows me a ton of partitions, including /dev/sdaX, where X=1 through 12, plus three unallocated.

Anyone have any experience with what I'm after? (Is it even clear WHAT I'm after? )

If I had to do it via a conventional method, could I download an ISO onto an external (USB-powered) hard drive and install it from there? But I don't know how/if I can boot up from that. *more confusion*
