Loading Debian on a PCMCIA Device Contributed by captainlarry on Thursday, October 25 @ 17:08:53 BST
I'm part of Personal Telco (a wireless community) and one of the things we're doing is building Linux based access points using the Host AP Mode drivers for the PrismII cards. I've just gotten past the testing on my laptop phase and want to load a Debian image on a Fujitsu Stylistic which has a bootable 340MB PCMCIA hard drive.
What is the best way to load woody onto a PCMCIA boot device? The Debian installers won't let you configure PCMCIA until the root filesystem is mounted. Using potato I would have just manually untar'd the base.tgz file but woody doesn't seem to work that way.
My thought is that there has to be a way to mount the PCMCIA drive on my laptop, tell apt/dpkg that /mnt is now the root file system and install the base packages into there ... but before I go ransacking the documentation I thought I'd ask for pointers.
