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.
