I have a weird problem that is kind of off topic, but here goes anyway...
I have an *old* laptop collecting dust, and i have been wondering what it
would take to get it up and running with LFS.
The problem is it doesnt have enough diskspace to install a host distro *and*
lfs, and it doesnt have a cd-rom drive so i can build LFS from a boot cd.
I was thinking that i might be abel to boot off a floppy based mini distro
with nfs support that would allow me to chroot to a real distro via the
network so i could start the installation on the empty disk on my laptop. Is
this even possible? Does anybody know of a floppy based distro that could do
Are there other ways i could do this that i have overlooked?
I would prefer not to install a donor distro on the laptop because i want to
have only one partition to conserve space.
