Can this VAIO boot PL from a CF Card? If true, can I just copy & paste the contents of my FD (which has DSL well & running) & all set? What are the steps I need to take to accomplish this?
It Depends. First do you have a floppy drive that you can make a SmartBootManager
Floppy so as to tell the Vaio to boot from PCMCIA.
Or you won't need it if your bios will boot from PCMCIA (if using a PCMCIA to CF adapter card) is why I am mentioning all of the above.
If you already have a CF slot in the Vaio and can boot from that slot. Then no problem.
You can insert your CF card into another Laptop/Desktop with a CDROM. Boot Puppy Live CD. Run gparted and format CF card as EXT2 file system. Flag it as boot. Label it as root (/)
Run the Puppy universal installer. It has a option on the installer to install to CF. Do a Frugal install and install grub boot loader to mbr of CF card. Tell Bios to boot off CF. Your done.
Hope that helps. Good luck with it. Happy trails, ROK.
Oh yeah. Look in My blogs for install tips.
