I've got an IBM Thinkpad 760EL, and want to install Red Hat Linux v4.2
on it, which FTP'd from redhat.com. I don't have another Linux-based
system around so I can't put it on the HD of the laptop, I don't have it
on CD, so what I want to do is a network installation from a shared
directory on my Windows 95 PC.
Problem is that the laptop's network card is a Xircom II PS PCMCIA
network card, and this doesn't seem to be supported by this version of
Linux - at least it doesn't come up in the install menu.
Is there a way around this? I'm relatively new to Linux - I've never
compiled a kernel in my life :) - and I'm stuck. There doesn't seem to
be any other way I can install it.
Even if I had the CD I couldn't install Linux because I can only have
the CD-ROM drive and the floppy drive in one at a time - not both at
once - and I haven't got the external casing for either.
