I worked on my old 486 laptop project early this morning. Soon I hope the 16MB DRAM PCMCIA card will arrive and I will install Debian 3.0 r2. I got the ethernet PCMCIA card working a bit by experimenting with modconf and loading and unloading modules in the kernel. I got the traffic lights to light up on the router and the cable coming out of the ethernet card, the dongle. But they would not blink meaning no transmission is happening. I was also not able to ftp from the laptop. I decided to scrap the x install and work on getting some programming done using the GNU compiler collection and maybe using Elvis and trying out it's highlight syntax functions. I also tried to install tex.
