PCMCIA Installation


Where can I get an image for the pcmcia so I can install SuSE 9.1? I found one on the mandrake cd and it works, but then it wants to install mandrake, not SuSE. And I can't boot from the cdrom (which is plugged into the pcmcia), so I need the image for the pcmcia so I can boot from the stiffy!

Help!

What do I do?

It should be in the /images directory on the CD-ROM
Look around

Yes but that's the problem, my cd doesn't have an images directory. Do you know where I can find 1 online? The images that is? I tried to use the Mandrake 10.o pcmcia image, but that didn't work, cos then it wanted to install Mandrake.... obviously!

Although, I could copy the cd to the HDD, but I don't know how to install it then! What file do I run and how do I run it?
