I have Linux running on a 15Mb flash card. Its a tight squeeze and its
a best useful for a subset of applications. It is certainly uncomfortable
in that space.

The other problem with the pc110 is its getting long in the tooth. The
librettos arent much bigger but have big disks and better displays and
I'd definitely not buy a PC110 next time around

Im using a 340Mb PCMCIA type III drive. For communications Im using PLIP
(parallel port IP) on the base station (I'd like to use irda but the
irda stuff has only recently really gotten solid). When Im on a remote
lan site I use a pcmcia extender card so the disk is out of the machine on
the extender and a lan card is fitted. I don't need a modem on the road so
this has never been problematic (fortunately)
