Question IBM ThinkPad 755CX and 701C


I want to install RH8 Linux on a IBM ThinkPad 755CX and a ThinkPad 701C BUT can't because pcmcia probe fails. Installing over a network is my only choice. Any suggestions? I did an install of RH8 on a Compaq Armada 7800 using pcmcia - nic and all was well. Any suggestions?

Having had linux on a 755CX I feel your pain (and am wondering why you would bother, these things are 7-8 years old).

The hacked-up SCSI controller will keep you from being able to access the CDROM, I'm sure that hasn't changed.

The way I used to have to do it was to copy my linux files to the hard drive and install linux from there.

PCMCIA worked on my unit, however it re-flashed my PCMCIA modem once (and nearly cooked it).
