Guide for installing diskless md with pcmcia nentwork card?
« on: March 19, 2009, 11:04:43 pm »
Hi all

Can anyone point me to a guide how to make a notebook install for a diskless md booting with a pcmcia network card (installing (grub) on to a harddisk (physically i will use a cf card with an adapter) and also how to do this install (grub) on to a cd) ? unfortunately I don't have a build in floppy drive.
The bios option to boot from card bus networkcard is given, but does not work. It is a Dell Inspiron 5100 wiht a Trendnet TEG-PCBUSR pcmcia network card.
Thanks for any advice
Roberto

This guide: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/GRUB_PXE_network_boot is for installation on to a floppy only, right?
Do you think this might work as I have a file for my card called RTGBODI.com on the installation cd ? http://howto.gumph.org/content/pxe-boot-a-laptop/
