I too have a Sony VAIO laptop (PCG-C1VN) that does not have an internal
floppy or cdrom. I've installed a variety of Linux distributions on it
using the PCMCIA CD drive and haven't needed any special holding
partitions. In fact the only item that was needed was to pass a kernel
option on startup, "ide2=0x180".
What model are you working with?
