  • 2. Help needed: how/where do I insert the password in the Lenovo for the WLAN?
    Hi. I just changed apartment, and my new flatmates gave me the password to connect the Wireless Internet. I have a Lenovo X60 and do not know HOW and WHERE I should Insert the password. I select the Wlan of the house, I open the COnfiguration with the 3 tabs (General Settings, Wireless Settings, Additional Settings) and have no clue what to do. I imagine has to do with WIRELESS SECURITY TYPE, but it's just my guess. Every tip/help/suggestion is highly appreciated thanks in advance

toshiba satalite 405cs need to boot of a PCMCIA cd-rom

My laptop bios only let me boot off a Floppy.  Is that something I can do to
have it read from the PCMCIA card in linux?
Or is my only option is to find red hat linux 7.3 in a floppy disks?

2.Toshiba Satellite Pro 405CS, can't read PCMCIA CD-rom


I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 405CS.  I want to install window 2000 but
can't do it b/c the laptop
can not read my PCMCIA CD-rom.  I have NO operating system at all on the C
drive now.   The
BIOS will only boot off a FDD or HDD.  I need SPECIFICS on what to do.  I
updated my BIOS but
it still only gave me the 2 choices FDD and HDD.  Is there a DOS command

3.CD-ROM acting strange when trying to boot from XP CD

I have two identical 5 year old laptops.  Each has a combo
DVD/CD/floppy drive.  When both systems were new, you could boot from
the CD drive when that option was turned on in the BIOS.
About 1 year ago laptop A was still bootable from the CD.  However,
something happened to the CD drive on laptop B so that the only disks
it could read were either audio CDs or movie DVDs.
If I put in the XP CD and tried to boot, it sat stalled and never put
up the message on the screen "To boot from the CD, press any key ...".
If I booted from XP on the hard drive and then tried to look at a
software CD, this failed also.  The problem appeared to be with B's CD
drive, because if I switched the CD drives between the two laptops, the
problem followed to where B's CD drive was installed.

Now this past weekend a similar problem has occured.  If I take A's CD
drive and install it on either laptop, it refuses to boot from a
bootable CD such as my XP CD or my Ghost 9.0 CD.  Even though it
refuses to boot, if I boot up XP from the hard drive and then put in
the Ghost CD for example, it is able to read and execute the CD.
Again, if I switch the CD drive to a different laptop, the problem
occurs there also.

So now I have two CD drives:

Drive A - Can play audio CDs, video DVDs, software
Can't be booted from

Drive B - Can play audio CDs and video DVDs
Doesn't recognize software and can't be booted from

I'm puzzled - I would think a CD/DVD drive would be either good
or bad, not that they can be capable performing some functions but not
others.  Does this behaviour sound logical and is it to be expected as
a drive gets older?  Thanks!

4.Need to Boot from CD on a Toshiba Sat Pro 430

Wondered if someone could help me?
I have a Toshiba Sat Pro 430cdt which has been reformatted.
I want to put Windows 98 se as the OS. The Bios is 6.5 but does not
allow me to boot from the CD.only the HDD or FDD. I have both a floppy
drive and a CD drive but can only have one installed at a time. I cant
boot from a Bootable Windows CD as it doesnt find the CD...... if I
boot from a floppy it stops when it cant find the CD.
I guess I boot from the floppy from boot disc with "CD not supported
but what do I do next? I have the driver from Toshiba for the cd
called TOSCDROM but after install I still cant find the CD rom. Any
help would be appreciated. PS I am not that knowledgable but happy to
plug away!
