PCMCIA cards and an ancient laptop
When cleaning my room out quite recently, I came across an ancient laptop that somebody had given me several years ago. It's a Toshiba Satellite Pro T2155CDS, possibly running a processor at 133mhz with 16mb of ram. I'm not to sure on the specs, as I haven't used it in quite some time. It has an external floppy drive, an internal cd drive, and as I recall, I took out the 800mb harddrive in there and installed a 6gb one. It also has two PCMCIA slots and runs Win98 fairly well.
I would like to switch it over to Linux as a remote module for reading email, checking news online, etc. However, it has no network capability except for the PCMCIA slot. I wanted to know if anyone here knows what type of cards would be compatible with these slots? I looked on ebay and found some network cards for around $15 or so, but I would hate to spend any money on something, only to find out that it doesn't work. I wouldn't mind getting a USB card as well, as I do have a USB wireless adapter that I might be using soon. Any help on this matter would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
