Give a boot floppy PCMCIA support

I have a LAN card that isn't suported by any of the floppy disk images I have, but I have Linux drivers for this LAN. My newest images abnormally terminate with a error code of 9 when it hits the PCMCIA drivers (though it detects them). Because my LAN's a PCMCIA card, this prevents me from getting to it. Also, my older images do not support PCMCIA. I have Orange Linux, Tomsrtbt Linux, and a bunch of Mandrake images. What's the best way to incorporate my Linux drivers in, say my Tomsrtbt Linux so I can access my LAN card and begin a LAN based install?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place. You can bump threads if no replies but please do not ask the same question just because your not getting any replies. You have been a member for quite some time now, you should know better and should understand our rules on the site.

You can follow the existing thread here:
