Subject: pcmcia problem with boot floppies
More on that fresh install on a laptop:
- The PCMCIA alternative is kind of confusing. For example, my laptop has
only one slot, which is occupied by the floppy during installation, so it's
not clear whether it's safe to configure it or not. (It turned out that the
answer to this is 'yes').
- I think I chose not to configure the network part, and
/etc/pcmcia/network.opts ended up as an empty file. It would be extremely
useful if the distribution template were included there (commented out
maybe), rather than just an empty file.
I was using the boot floppies in "frozen" (the tecra versions), in the 4-26
directory. The actual files seem to have been last touched on 5-11.
