Linux on Omnibook 300

Post by G. Alexander Flet » Wed, 29 Jan 1997 04:00:00



Is it possible to run Linux on an Omnibook 300? I have an opportunity to
get one pretty cheap, and I'm wondering if there's anyone who's tried
and succeeded or failed...Anyone? I know it only comes with 2 megs..I'd
get the 6 meg upgrade to bring it up to 8 megs..

Linux on Omnibook 300

I have an Omnibook 430 with 6MB and ~105MB HD, and would also like to hear
from anyone who has successfully installed Linux on one of these older
machines.

Thanks,

John

1. Linux/Minix and the H.P. Omnibook 300

Has anyone successfully installed Linux (or Minix) on a
Hewlett Packard Omnibook 300?  I realize that the Omnibook 300
is at the very bottom edge of the "Linux-viable" spectrum,
but I thought it might be an interesting learning experience.
Is Linux capable of recognizing (and booting from) the
Omnibook's internal type-III PCMCIA hard drive?  Does anyone
have any suggestions/experiences?
