I need a linux scsi boot floppy for a old dell laptop
I was needing to find a linux scsi boot disk for my old dell laptop.
It has a docking station and attached to it is a scsi cdrom drive.
The docking station has a AHA152x chip in it.
I've searched and searched and I can't find one.
Thanks for the help.

Sounds like you need a special kernel. 2.6 kernels will no longer fit onto a standard floppy, but you might be able to build yourself one with a 2.4 kernel.
All you have to do is get hold of the 2.4 kernel sources and build a custom kernel without modules - build everything you need into the kernel image, discarding anything that you wont need, copy the kernel to a blank floppy disk, and boot up from it.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
