I had to reinstall using the LISA floppies in order to get this working
(on a Dell, but its the PCMCIA that is the problem). The errata (which
of course I only read later :-) points this out. You may also need to
change your modem away from dev/modem to TTSY3 (caps?), I did. I
found this out by looking at the kppp error log, which was very helpful.
I don't know if PCMCIA can be installed later by building a new kernel
or something, I'm too much of a newbie to work out how to do that at the
moment. I have got the modem working now though.
The downside is that KDE now now longer boots on startup, so I'll have
to figure that out as well. Presumably there is a startup file somewhere
I add the line 'KDE' into?
There is also a file that needs to be edited (its on the faq on the
caldera site) to get X running. note that the faq appears to be wrong,
it refers to 'home' at one point, when I think it should be $home. At
least, I got errors with home, and it worked with $home :-)
