I only have the PC110. No expansion base, floppy, cdrom, etc. I have a 45
MB Viking CF card with a PCMCIA adaptor. I also have a notebook computer
that has PCMCIA ports. I can create a filesystem on the CF card and put
all the necesasry files that are needed to boot.
That would be great if I could get a copy of your kernel!
