I've successfully install linux on my existing DOS partition in my
laptop(omnibook 5500) via UMSDOS. However, I found linux really
swallowed a lot of space in this format( about 240 MB for only X
windows, gcc, gf77, and some required files installed). What I'm
thinking is to buy a super floppy device, such as Syquest EZFlyer250, or
Monai 540(now they have Monai750) to give linux additional space.
So I am thinking about the driver problem. Both of those device have
Parallel and SCSI version. Parallel is easy to use and give me the
chance to exchange data with other machines without SCSI card. SCSI is
fast but I need to go though SCSI + PCMCIA for my laptop. I really
don't know which way is more maturelly supported by linux?
Anyone can give me a hint or has knowledge about the performance of
this configuration will be appreciated.
Thank you very much
