Toshiba Satellite 210CS - PMCIA-card and BIOS

Heard about a couple of people installing Linux on their old laptops, and then the laptop suddenly wouldn't work, because under the formating of the Windows-drive, the BIOS got lost, since the BIOS was located on the Windows-drive.

So, i want to install Slackware on this lappy. It has from before a Nokia DTP 2 Ver II PMCIA-card, and i was wondering is somebody had knowledge to a cheap, good PMCIA-card with Ethernet-support, so i can connect the computer to my network.

Ah, yeah, it has 16MB RAM and a 1.25GB harddrive, or, at least the Windows-partition is that big.
Thanks for reading this tread.
