I'm a newbie and I'm trying to install Linux on an old ThinkPad 700C.

I get an 'NMI generated from unknown source' while booting
wiht the rescue diskette.

There is also a 'Whaa. Error occurred' up above this last error.

A little perusal of the source indicates that the first error is in
a file 'ps2esdi.c' which is, I think, code related to the hard drive
on this machine.

In any case, it ain't working.  Anybody got any ideas?



1. (help) Microchannel architecture (IBM Thinkpad 700)

I bought it yesterday for a few and was quite happy.
 Now I read here that it has an MCA architecture, that I won't ever run
linux on it etc. etc...
 Well, I don't think I'll give up. I'm looking for a page previously at

NE1 knows where it is by now ? (seems that it has moved or disappeared
since may.)
