Acer Travelmate 340t

Specs: Windows XP
i have a old notebook, but it does not have hard disk drives. only with 64mb RAM, 433mhz processorm, and 2mb vram, i wanted to make it as webserver on it, with a usb drives. but the problem is, the notebook could not boot from usb, even it does not have pxe or whatever to support it to boot from network. i think other than booting linux... if there was any bootable cd to make the notebook to boot from usb drives? like when inserting a cd with some dos application or command, it will boot from usb... i think so..

Sure, you have to either find a distro that offers that or make your own.

Any floppy can be put on as track one. I used a cat command from floppy raw in BeOS might have similar in linux to file.

Then I used a nero build file. (forget that name) to make nero burn the floppy image file to track one.

DD might work with all this too. Basically you can take almost any floppy and burn it to a cd. This assumes your system can boot to a cd el-torreto (spelling). There is also I forget syslinux/isolinux for older systems.
