Re: Toshiba 2805-S302 Woody
I would suggest going with some woody netinst cd's. I don't have any
urls handy, but I'm sure that a quick look at google will show you what
you want. I've used both a disk with a 2.4bf kernel flavor which worked
quite well and supported everything, and the disk I used to install this
laptop was a 2.4.18-xfs plus a bunch of other things. I would highly
recommend and xfs install, particularly on a laptop.
