I tried using pcmcia. It already had the three basic modules loaded but
cardmgr -o could not find any cards (even if I loaded the two needed
ethernet modules). The config file was already set up to recognize this
smc-based Megahertz card. I tried both sockets. The card works
I don't have plip or slip modules in the 6MB of included modules (which do
include joysticks and radio of all sorts).
We have a nullmodem cable. Redhat has no kermit, which I used before
between linux and DOS computers. What terminal program might Redhat come
with that I could use for file transfer to some other DOS or linux
computer and how could I set this up? I never did succeed in file
transfer over a nullmodem cable with one computer used as a dumb terminal.
I could try to set up telnetd but I don't think I got file transfer
working with that either, over nullmodem cable.
It has FTP. Can I set up BL to be an FTP server somehow?
We won't be taking this computer on vacation if the pcmcia part does not
work, but I am learning a lot trying to find out.
