compaq armada 4210t docking bay network card
Im trying to install debian for the first time on a Compaq Armada
4210t, 3Gb HD, 96Mb RAM, P233, laptop without CDR-drive and with the
network card in the docking bay.
I get as far as to configure the network before installing the base
system. Im using a floppy network install with 6 floppys. (root.bin,
rescue.bin and 4 driver.bin floppys) Is this the best way to do a
network install ?
The problem is I cant find the network driver. Its not a PCMCIA-card
,its built in to the docking bay and called something like Compaq
armada 4210 family ethernet card. (checked in windows, cant remember
Do I have to get the driver on a floppydisk from somewhere, I cant find
it for linux nowhere.
Is there another way to get around (or straight at ) this ?
Should I go for another distro ? (I hope not...)
