SLIP Networking


Hello all,

Some one just gave me a crapy old laptop. Any smart person would just toss it: no nic, the screen is funky, etc.

But I like it. ;-)

I was hoping to do something useful with it, but for that I need net access. (oh, also no cd drive). So I was wondering, does anyone know of a boot-disk (floppy) linux system that includes SLIP (serial networking) support? Or perhaps some way that I could add it to an existing boot-linux?

Thanks,

-Jack C
