Therein lies the problem.

My cd rom (a PCMCIA) will not be recognized by windows 95. The PCMCIA card manager sees it and it is setup as a scsi device (which it is, it goes from scsi to pcmcia) but there is no Disk Icon in My Computer

I had already tried those backdoor passwords and they hadnt worked, thanks though. i have already tried to open the case to take out the CMOS battery, and i cant really open the case without tearing up the display. its sorta strangely stuck together.

thanks for the info though.

ive been looking online for board schematics to find the jumpers to flash the CMOS, but ive also heard that on some bios...es the password is held on an EEPROM chip...

The BIOS is a Phoenix NoteBIOS 4.05

but farther down the page it says LifeBook520D Bios version 1.10?

strange.

thanks - themacuser

Um... i know this might be unrelevant, but...

I recently got a Fujitsu LifeBook 520D and im locked out. As soon as i turn it on, it prompts for a Password. I dont have the password, i cant boot to anything, i cant find the CMOS battery because i cant open the computer (Ive tried about 7 times). I cant enter setup because i dont have the password. Basically, i cant do anything.

I had my hopes up, as i had planned to put RedHat 7.1 on it.

Plus, does anyone have the 7.1 requirements?

Hi again. Ive been having some site trouble. I should have used my own HTML, but i was in a hurry to put up the website.

what im getting to is, anyone has any suggestions as to Sielle itself or anything of that sort, feel free to email me at

sielle.dan@gmail.com

I know, its strange to put a name to a piece of software that doesnt exist yet, but ive been working on Sielle Since about April 2003.
i guess it still needs quite a bit of work.

Sorry about that.

By freeware i meant released under the GNU GPL. I wrote that wrong.

This was NOT planned to be written from scratch. thats a pretty useless idea considering that it would be smarter to use software thats tried and true...

*FreeBSD*

I also made a mistake by saying Operating System. (I wrote this in a hurry). The best way to say it is "a visual shell for BSD, like Win95 was a shell for DOS".

Sorry for the confusion. Ill try not to right in a hurry next time.

Thanks a lot.

I have piled up enough for an adapter and I'm going to try the swap. I'm going to do it thru my apple though. It can read DOS partitions and so it should mount automatically. I'm more confident using a computer I'm more familiar with. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to keep an active DOS partition because i program a lot. I'm trying to work out a GUI for the FreeDOS project. Success so far, but i have to use Microsoft QuickBasic which requires DOS. Rats.

Hello Again,

It's been a while since i last posted and i have a question.

Lately ive been talking to my father about turning my hard disk over to a local computer store. There, they would put the hard drive in one of their computers and dump the files from the install c.d. to my hard drive. This would mean that the computer would have to have another hard disk to boot from so they could get into windows and transfer the files. Would this be possible? If they plug my hard disk into their computer, would it automatically show up under the "My Computer" icon?

Thanks much

Thanks much.

i am interested in buying a 2.5" - 3.5" adapter

if i had the notebooks drive connected to the computer, i would have to have the driver (or would the bios make it work)

would it be possible to have my previous (20gb) drive attached and then use disk druid to partition to the 2.5" disk?

(i ask this because the other drive has win2k and already has the driver installed.

thanks again.

I think i might have made a big step forward.

i now know how to remove the hard disk, however, the screw holding the disk in place has a stripped head, i may be able to succesfully remove it, if so, how could i install linux through another computer, is there a special 2.5" - 3.5" ide adapter?

i could get a hold of another pc.

thanks

themacuser

p.s. i am using the publishers edition of RH7.1

I appreciate all of your input, however, i do not have a floppy drive. let me give you more sight towards my problem.

being the piece of garbage ( i hope you forgive my bias ) that windows 95 is, it lost the vmm32.vxd memory manager file. i used a method of extraction to rebuild all of the memory files i lost but it still didnt work.

i appreciate everything and if you have any idea how to fix this without a floppy drive, i would appreciate it.

okay so heres my problem, and yes i really really need help.

i have a a Toshiba Libretto 100CT. i bought it in a garage sale for a madd hott price. it came with windows 95 preinstalled and it has pcmcia support and a port extender. i then bought a panasonic kxl-783a cd rom drive. i was never able to get the driver to work and shortly after i bought it, windows lost a critical file and refused to boot up. now the only option i have is to use DOS.

I bought the cd rom drive in the hopes of installing red hat 7.1 and now that i dont have windows 95, i dont have cd rom support or network support now that i am in dos and i am desperate to get redhat on there, i cant remove the hard drive,

what can i do, someone please help me, im a student and as soon as school starts, i have to put the computers away!

Please send help!!!
