PCMCIA Support

therboot does not (yet) offer support for PCMCIA cards.

This challenge waits for those who looking for an interresting problem ( and / or glory ;-)

If you are http://www.ltsp.org LTSP user, look at the LTSP “wireless” packages at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=17723

That package contains a floppy image that can be used to boot off wireless or wirebound PCMCIA network cards (probably other wireless [=NICs=] as well).
