Tried that, and it started the installation.  Hmm, now I wonder if the
installer is confused, and maybe the flags aren't working?

How do I do that?

Someone else I know suggested that I need to put the PCMCIA driver .img on
a floppy and use that as the driver disk.  This is problematic, because
this machine doesn't have a floppy drive, and it would be a PCMCIA drive

Coming awfully close to just copying the whole damn thing to
/dev/hda2/RH9/ or something.

(who likes her tiny computer, except when it's being annoying and stupid.)

I like to live alone, but it's crowded inside sometimes.
