I just want to know if I'm on the right track here. I'm trying to install
debian on my laptop. I made some boot floppies but there doesn't seem to be
any way to get them to recognize my pcmcia network card. Or is there?
So assuming there isn't, I'm guessng I have to install from a CD. I don't
have a CD burner yet although I ordered one last Friday. Should arrive
today or tomorrow. So I haven't tried to install from a CD yet. But I'm
guessing the CD image would include pcmcia support because they have more
room on a CD than a diskette. Is that right?
And then I would have to enter a boot parameter like
"console=ttyS0,115200n8" to get a serial console because I'm not going to
be able to edit the syslinux.cfg on the CD. Right?
Finally, I have an Oralux CD that I can boot from. I've heard rumors that
you can install debian via an Oralux CD but I can't find and docs on that.
Can that be done?
