    Thanks, Josef. I've found this HOWTO on linuxdoc.org and it works
  for potato 2.2r4, so I have now Debian on HP Omnibook 4000CT =)
  Also I've disabled NFS v.3 on host machine, I think it (NFS v.3)
  was another problem.
    BTW, serial line works too, but I can't transmit files from
  mounted NFS directory. It tries to transmit and hangs.
  Pings are working both ways.
