Unable to install Linux on Laptop with PCMCIA CD-Rom
I have a Sharp Actius PC-A150 laptop which I tried to install Linux. It comes with a PCMCIA cd-rom. When reinstalling from Windows, the laptop has no problem with booting from the CD-Rom without any floppy drive.
I am trying to install Linux on this machine. It will go into setup but the when it comes to hardware detection, it just cannot detect the PCMCIA cd-rom and cannot find any drivers for it.
I tried several distros but all have the same problem.
Does anyone has any advice or solution to this problem? Thanks in advance!
