As I move forward past the ThinkPad 760XD project, I once again find myself tinkering with the ThinkPad 500, and again, LiteBook has been resurrected. This time, moving forward with the BasicLinux install.
So far, aside from the original mouse problem that was so prohibitive, things seem to be moving along nicely. With a full 12mb RAM at my disposal, the floppy version of BasicLinux works fine. There are some network issues that will no doubt need to be addressed (possibly even wireless), but beyond that, it seems to be capable.
Which is all ironic; I've gone full circle back to IBM machines and back to that project that seemed to be a dead end.
Curious as to where this leads.
