I recently acquired a (free!) IBM thinkpad from 1994. I do not have a charger but got it to run by hooking a power supple to where the battery hooks up. The hard drive (a nice roomy 520 megs) does not work, but it does have a working floppy drive.
Here is the Question: Is their any type of linux that can can boot from a floppy disk and run on a system like this:
50 mhz processor 20 MB of RAM, previously 4 MB. I found an unused 16 MB card under the floppy drive (?!)
If there isn't one you know of, is their any version of MS-DOS that I can boot from a floppy and download for free? Thanks!
Update: I found a 2.1 GB HD ($20) online, which could help. I won't order it yet, though.
