I am going to give DSL a try.  It won't be so easy....

The system cannot boot from a CD, so I have to first get the "the all in 
one boot floppy"  http://home.arcor.de/mschierlm/bootdisk/

then install of CD with both PCMCI slots in use.
then put in a LAN PCMCI with the CD and install networking stuff.
then pull the LAN, put in a USB PCMCI with the CD and install that.

Then, hopefully I will be ready to go!
