Installation of DSL on a old computer with out a booting CD-ROM drive.
Hello all (:
I have a problem. I got a very old computer that dates as far back as the really early 90's. It can only boot from the floppy drive or the hard drive. It can sort of take windows 98 but I don't want that on there. So I got a ISO burned of Damn Small Linux. Made a boot floppy. Got the floppy up and running but it still was not accessing the disk on the CD-ROM. So I tried a poor mans install. I tried to copy over KNOPPIX\KNOPPIX to a FAT32 both with and with out a OS on and that still did not work. now it dose have a Ethernet port. I read you can do a Poor mans install with a floppy and a Ethernet card and to a net install but I want to avoid this because are house is wireless and I don't want to drag the thing over to the router just to get it up and running to the internet. any suggestions? I am doing this just for a fun project nothing to needing.
