I have a circa 1995 Tadpole Laptop workstation, built in Cambridge England, that I am trying to revive and at the same time learn about Linux.
It originally had NT on it (a floppy install!), but now I only have a Win 95 Command.com and access to an external SCSI CD via MSDEX. So no Windows, only DOS.
I have tried sbm.bin, but it does not see the SCSI CD.
Surely there must be a way I can just launch an Ubuntu installation off the CD?
Any help appreciated. I've been lost in the Google desert for days!
Thanks.
