I have an AST laptop Pentium 133 with 24 MB of RAM and a 1 GB hard drive. I would like to install a small distribution of Linux on this machine to use for internet browsing. There is not a CD drive in the machine only a floppy. Is there anyway to connect the laptop's hard drive to another desktop to place a generically configured OS and then move it over to the laptop?
The laptop also has the ability to use a CD drive I just do not own one. Is there a connector that would connect the laptop to a regular CD drive from a desktop?
If either one of these options are not an option is there a Linux distribution that could be installed via floppy?
Thank you for helping me with my OLD laptop!
