Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

2.0 kernel? I would think you would have a better chance with a more up-to-date one/two floppy based mini-distro (yes, I read the ps, but what's the alternative?). Must be something around with good networking tools.
Sorry I don't have a specific recommendation, but I would think all the improvements and refinements that have gone into the kernel/drivers since v2.0 would be worth a lot.
You're right, kernel 2.6 is nice, but 30 megs if i didn't miss anything (thats a few floppies, I simply don't have).
But it's ok now, i resolved the problem, the pcmcia service crashed, and I had no entry for my network card in /etc/pcmcia/config. I inserted one, talked to the pcmcia daemon, asked him to please run, and now it's working.
