1. Install the drive in another non-pentium laptop/computer (you can use a laptop IDE connector to a normal IDE connector converter to do this with a desktop computer) (the non-pentium computer will assure that you will not get any > 486 style packages installed on the system) 2. fdisk the drive like: partition size filesystem /dev/hda1 10M dos (this is the bootable one) /dev/hda2 100M linux swap /dev/hda3 the rest linux whatever (ext2 ext3...) 3. format the /dev/hda1 partition as a fat partition and sys the drive 4. Install loadlin.exe on the fat partition (you can find it on most distrobution CD's or on the net at http://elserv.ffm.fgan.de/~lermen/ 5. Install your favorite distro of linux WITHOUT INSTALLING A BOOTLOADER!!!!! and creating a boot disk 6. Boot into Linux and copy the kernel you are running to the 10M DOS partition 7. edit/create the autoexec.bat file on the DOS partition and add the following: c:\loadlin.exe THE_LINUX_KERNEL_FILE_HERE root=/dev/hda3 8. reboot without the floppy drive and see if it works.. 9. install the HD in the Handbook using these instructions.
|What they have
|How to get at it
|Memory, Battery, Floppy Drive, Mouse pointer cover, Keyboard replacement, AC Adapter
|Click on "486 Laptops" and then on "Handbook"
|just go to the "Memory Products" and Gateway2000 (16MB item number 113995368, last time I checked)
|Memory, Battery, CMOS Battery
|Go to the "Click Here To Find Upgrades and All Other Peripherals for Your Laptop, Notebook, Palmtop, and HandHeld Computer", "Gateway", then "Gateway Handbook 486"
you can install the 95b version using intrlnk and intrsvr (get you a copy here) get one of those parallel data transfer cables (or serial if you want, i think a null modem cable will do) and attach your computers togeather on your Desktop, in DOS (not windows) type: intersvr x: /lpt1 where x is your cdrom drive... (issues with this are discussed later) or /com1 if you are using a serial cable (on com1) on your laptop, in the config.sys file DEVICE=C:\dos\interlnk.exe /noprinter /v /auto reboot your laptop (you can even do this on a boot floppy if you want, as long as the interlnk program and this config.sys file is on that disk) the server should recognize that something is connected to it in DOS on your laptop change to the redirected drive. you will see on the server what the client drives look like in relation to the server drives. do a "dir" and make sure that you can see the "setup.exe" program: if so: type in "setup" if not: then you might have a problem with your CDROM driver. make sure that your DOS cdrom driver is installed (usually windows does this when you exit into DOS mode) if you still cant get it working: You can then just copy the whole 95 cd on to your desktop machine and when you repeat this process, just go to that directory and execute the "setup" program If you have any problems just let me know
Installation: 1. go to add new hardware 2. dont let windows search for the hardware, select the sound, video,game controllers icon 3. click on have disk and open the "oemsetup.inf" file in the speaker.zip (make sure that the speaker.drv is in the same dir) 4. select the PC speaker controller from the driver window 5. set the properties to your likeing

(HONDA "PCR E28FS")
This is the pinout of the AC connector looking at the cord NOT THE LAPTOP! (the diagram is also on the AC adapter)
