Modify Boot Floppy or Install Without
I need help. I have a laptop (Fujitsu Lifebook 233mhz) that I want Red Hat on. My nic (pcmcia D-Link DFE-670TXD) is not supported by the pcmcia boot disk.
I have placed Red Hat 7.2 in a nfs folder on my primary server, and have mounted it on the laptop (which has an OLD version of Debian installed, with a hack that lets it use the nic).
So-- Can I start the Red Hat 7.2 installer without having to use a boot disk from a command prompt inside my Debian laptop? Or am I hosed?
Can I recompile the pcmcia boot floppy or something?
I'm pretty new at this stuff. Can someone help me out??
Remember, I CAN'T use the standard bootnet or pcmcia boot disks, as my nic is unsupported (in another forum I got 100 replies telling me how to use rawrite....eek)
