Re: [PLUG] Help installing to VAIO SuperSlim...

I downloaded the "jogdial" applet off of sourceforge. It works OK. I can't 
even download Windows 2000 drivers for the thing. I'm running with the stock 
kernel from Mandrake 8.0 on my Vaio Z505 (2.4.3 I think? - I'm on my desktop 
at the moment. And the notebook is packed up in the car for a weeklong triip).

The only goofy thing I had to do to get things loaded, besides what's been 
mentioned so far, is to disable probing PCMCIA when booting for the initial 
install. I think the install kept getting a panic until I did that. And, that 
was with an external Sony DVD-ROM drive (which is mostly an overly expensive 
CD-ROM drive under Linux for the moment).

Good luck,
-Jason Nocks
