Patriot BK630E


Does anybody know of a linux I can put on this Patriot BK630E through a floppy like possibly a netboot install, the cd drive is broken and it probably can't boot off of usb because of its age, anybody know?

A quick search digs up this which has its roots as a floppy based Linux. It appears to have matured a bit but may be useful to you:

Not tried it myself - ironically I've long since killed all my floppies.

It doesn't matter anymore, I found a CD drive lying about that worked, I was going to try zenwalk, but it crashed when it tried to start X, so for now I have windows 2000 on it working pretty ok.
