Acer Travelmate 723TX, with no cdrom to boot from: how difficult is THAT!
I have xp running rings round my mind. I give up with these BSoD'ss... Im tired of c:\ .. 'n wanna /dev/hda now.. what Im sayin is, I wanna ditch ol Billy n move on up: I wanna install ImpiLinux. Now, considering impi is based on debian, with some stuff borrowed from knoppix, I thinks it should allow me to install without having a cd in the drive.. see, the cds rom has given up its ghost...
OK. available, I now have a Pii laptop, with 192 MB SDRAM, 1x 3.5" floppy disk drive (bios sez I can boot from it), 1 x 10 GB HDD ( 1 partition, runnin XPensive PROstitute), ir port, 1 x USB 1.1, 1 x 4 port USB hub (smile, I had to find a way to connect my cellfone AND my flashdrive at once ), an internal modem Ive never used cos it has an RJ45 plug, and we use RJ11 and it says analogue lines only, 1x 256 MB Flash disk, a cover cd with impi, a Samsung DVD-R/CD-RW in a USB case(Cant boot from it, or the flashdrive) and a lotta enthusiasm!!
ANYONE wanna offer some advice, or a way forward? I cannot boot from CD. I tried various floppy images with no success. I can get grldr to run from boot.ini, and thats it. Anyone? Please? Im begging? Pleaaaaaassssseeeeee?
