I can't really remember but I used to sell used laptops and had a few of these I think they either needed a specific PCMCIA drive or a drive with a unique Toshiba port to boot from a drive. Are you trying to install XP?

well heres what i tried:
copied the files from the auditor cd to a 1gb sd card.
stuck the card into the toshiba's sd slot.
still no luck.
with f12, all i get is a TOSHIBA: IN TOUCH WITH TOMMOROW bios screen with little icons below it where i can select hard drive (it has none), cd, floppy network, and pcmcia (i think)...
thing is, it doesnt have a cd drive or floppy, and i figured i didnt need the noisy-ass win98 4200rpom 4.86gb ibm hdd i stuck in there :)
