Net/PCMCI CF Boot?


I am looking for a bootable CD (or even floppy, ugh) that will let me boot an OLD laptop over network or from a PCMCIA CF adaptor. Its hard drive is shot, and I would like to get some use out of the system yet.

Thoughts appreciated.

SOLVED

To answer my own question: I am using a bootdisk made with "make bzdisk" from linux kernel sources to build a diskless system with nfsroot.
