Hi, i am trying to install Linux on my old Compaq presario 1060 laptop and i was wondering if any1 could recommend a distro that would work easily with pcmcia for my laptop?
pcmcia slots: type 2 - pcmcia bridge cirrus?? not sure exactly
vga - neomagic - 1 or 2mb?
I tried damnsmalllinux 0.6.3 worked great except the pcmcia slots didnt work, i then tried vectorlinux v4 - more or less the same problem spent a week but just gave up after trying for 2 weeks, I am currently playing around with Mandrake 10 cos it was lying around - just trying it to see if i can get the pcmcia slots working with a more mature distro!
all i require is pcmcia support, monkeyd or apache and command line interface from a linux distro - any ideas?
I plan to use it has a server linked up to a router at home - leave it in my desk to share Southpark with the world
