Hm.  Any difference between tecra and tecra-safe?
Which one should I use?

I understand, if the pcmcia support is working properly.

Hm, I like this the most, but I am rather short of floppies
right now.  If I want to copy some base*tgz* to my HARDDISK
and install via a MOUNT of the dos-partition, which
base-file should I take: base2_1* or base2_2* ???
(I guess 2_1 if the number referes to the distribution.)
