Re: Has anyone gotten ELKS to run on an I80186 based system?



Excerped from http://tuxmobil.org/pda_linux_hp_lx200.html

"The HP 200LX is an IBM PC/XT with 80186 at 8/16MHz, 640x200 CGA LCD
screen, qwerty keyboard, numeric keypad, RS-232 port, PCMCIA Type II
v2.0 slot. It has MS-DOS 5.0 in ROM. All this is in tiny form factor:
16x9x2,5 cm and 18oz. Runs off 2xAA batteries. It was in production
between 1994-1999.

the PCMCIA and BIOS INT13 services necessary to boot MINIX on the
HP200LX Palmtop from a PCMCIA ATA Flash Disk. These services should be
equally useful for booting LINUX-86 (ELKS) on the HP200LX."
