I would like to install every last bit of Linux w/o using the
hard drive. I am willing to boot from a floppy, here is the setup:
When DOS boots, it loads some Banyan network drivers in AUTOEXEC.BAT.
They are: BAN /NL /NC, WDBAN, and REDIR4. There is a login which
then starts a menu from the network. Before login, there is a Z:
drive. After login there is an S: drive. I do not have write access
to either of these drives.
(or whatever, I can look it up). From DOS I can make it the D: drive
LINK INS <drive> <resource> [<password>] [-S]
I have write access to a few directories on this drive. It would
give me 800MB of free space for Linux. Am I correct to assume that
the network drivers will not run under Linux/dosemu/umsdos/whatever ?
I would also want to use the network printer. It also has a big long
name. It is an HP laserjet refered to as an Apple Laserwriter by the
486SX25 Dell, 8MB RAM, Ethernet, Western Didgital Paradise SVGA, an
IDE HD that I can't use (except maybe for swap), modem, & serial mouse.
