The hard drive and "sled" are missing.  The cost of both is too muich for this brick.

Can I usb boot ?  If not, is there something pcmcia I can boot from ?  


Booting from CD rom ( knoppix ) is slow and I can not write to it.   It would be good to
just put in some memory of some type and be good.  


I picked up the laptop for free ;)
