Need help determining device numbers

Hi folks!

I have acquired a Viewpoint TC100 (thin client terminal), it has all the makings of a silent dialup/leased line router (ie. small).

I have been trying to shoehorn Freesco v3.0 onto the onboard flash disk (4mb - plenty!) but when I come to boot from it I can't ID the device.

So far I've tried HDA, HDA1...HDD1 etc but no luck.

Has anyone come across this hardware before? If so, what's the enumeration?

The box also has a single IDE channel and can hold a HDD, but my GF didn't like the whirring noise coming from the spare room!

Because of the nature of the H/W I have to use the following method of installation:

Plug HDD into desktop PC
Load O/S onto desktop via floppy
Move HDD to TC100 box
Copy config from HDD to flash (in DOS as D drive)
Remove HDD from TC100 box
Swear and curse at result!
