Will it work on my laptop!?


I have a Dell Latitude XPi CD M166ST. (Yeah, I know!)

Specs:
48MB SODIMM PC33 SDRAM
2GB Hard Drive
Linksys WPC11v4 Network Adapter (PCMCIA) - 802.11b
Windows 98 SE (Bleh!)
NO CD-ROM
3.5" Floppy


Is it possible to install OpenBSD 2.7 on my laptop with a network install via the WPC11 or a hard drive install?

Always check HCL, minimum system requirements and etc, before posting obvious questions like these... If you go to the page of an Operating system and they don't have a HCL or minimum system requirements it's not even worthy trying to install it:

I agree with you! I am just curious as to how to go about initiating a network install over a WPC11v4. I checked the OpenBSD site, it seems fairly simple, I made the boot floppy and I will work on it tonight, I will update you on my success or failure, haha!

Well, according to obsd's site, that card is supported, so I don't think it would be very difficult.
