    Hi list,
    i got a new small laptop but it didnt own a cdrom drive or a internal
    network chip
    to do a network install. Is there a possibility to install plan9 over
    floppy disk?

    it is possible to boot from a floppy, but there isn't a full distribution
    on floppies.

    curious; this is a *new* laptop that *does* have a floppy but has neither a
    cdrom nor an ethernet port?

    i'd look for a cheap cardbus network adaptor (one that is supported)
    plan9 is much more interesting in a network.
