Well, I'm about to take the big plunge & try to install Linux on the
PC110 here, anyone have improvements over this plan:

171 Mb Maxtor HD in my 8 Mb PC110; no port replicator (Desktop system
PCMCIA dock to stuff Slackware onto the HD, will work.)
partitioned: 75 Mb Dos; 14 Mb Swap; 75 Mb Linux space.

I plan to store my "data" in the (bootable) Dos partition, until I get
more used to Linux. 40 Mb usually does it so I can install 32 or more
Mb of packages (can clear things off for the install, obviously!) into
the c: partition & then install to the /dev/hda3 partition (can also use
the swap space for extra packages & then re-fdisk it at the last

Anyone have a better idea? I've started the process, used PQMagicT to
move HD data around, and so on... Don't know if I want to try X on the
PC110, good utils set will probably do me...
