I may be seeking the impossible, but... I have a stack of several old Micron notebooks (Pentium 133) that I got for free. At least one probably works, and I'm sure I can make at least one more working "frankenbook" from the lot of them. Now, what I would like to do with one if possible is make a thin client out of it and netboot it over PCMCIA. Does anyone know of any PCMCIA NIC that can do this? Why, you may wonder, would I want to do something like this? Well, just for an educational experience, partly. Plus, I read that article a while back about the Microsoft iLoo project at Microsoft U.K. that was quickly killed when headquarters got wind of it (it wasn't spun that way, of course, but I think we can guess what really happened). Anyway, I thought that a notebook computer on a pull-down shelf in the toire would be interesting :-) I know I could install Linux on the disk, but the thin client angle seemed like it would be fun. I'd love to do it over wireless but I won't be greedy; I'm willing to run an Ethernet cable up the hall and into the bathroom :-) "No, no! Get away from me with that straitjacket! I'm sane, I tell you, sane as anyone!"
