mandrake on portege 3020CT laptop
Trying to install mandrake 10 on an old POS laptop more or less for fun (perhaps run a server on it). Its a Portege 3020CT and it has a pcmcia cd-rom, 96MB ram, 6gig HDD
It has no option to boot from a cd-rom... (this is extremely old, 300mhz, 96mb of ram).
Using the pcmcia boot floppy I managed to get the installer to recognize my external pcmcia cd-rom for installation.
I put in disc 1 or 3 for Mandrake 10 community.
I reached the language selection, selected english, then accepted the license agreement. Shortly after I got to another screen that says:
Found "imm", "ppa" interfaces
Do you have another one?
Yes/No/See hardware info
If I select yes I get a list of what appears to be a bunch of differnt drivers (random letters/numbers)
If I select no, it tells me:
An error occurred
An error occurred - no valid devices were found on which to create new filesystems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem
