The Challenge: An old laptop, with no OS that can only boot from a floppy. I want to install FreeBSD.
I have a USB CDROM, but I cannot make it bootable at the BIOS level. I have a network card (PCMCIA) but no knowledge of how to get drivers for it on a FreeBSD install floppy. I'm pretty sure I'll have to either install entirely from floppies (not worth the time) or from the CDROM or network, but I don't know how to make those devices work from a blank hd and a floppy. Any pointers? Thanks. -- yours, William _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
