Question about Portege 2000 boot with Linux

Advertisement
Hi everyone,
My Portege 2000 PIII 750MHz, 512 RAM, 20GB is simply driving me mad. I would like to try to install Linux, and have downloaded some distros to try it. The point is I am using an external CD/DVD reader, with a 16 bit pc card connector cable. Booting starts until the BIOS is involved, but when it gets to OS drivers being involved, booting hangs up, with every distro, except of course win XP, with which it installs perfectly fine.
Anybody got any suggestions on how to proceed? I really would like something lighter than WXP on my machine. Thx!

The best answer: Hi
I do not have this Portege but I know that Toshiba recovery image (WXP) contains driver for external ODD and the installation can be done without any problem.
