i have Mandrake 9 on the laptop and the connection works when i connect the cat5 wire into it but not with my trendware pcmcia card.
I used the wizard for both.
I really don't know anything about linux, i just installed it just to see if it'd work on my laptop. I need it for my CS major that starts at the end of august at VT.
edit: whoops, just checked Trend's website and my cards not on the compatible. So there would be no way in the world i could get this to work?
and another ?
I had XP home on this and with partition magic i made a linux partition and the boot drive before the NTFS. I installed mandrake and now it doesn't see XP anymore.
Will i have to format all to FAT then install XP and then Linux.
I did try to clean the laptop with the restoring disc which should have made it like the way it came but it still started up win mandrake
