Got the IBM 760 CD drive and second hard drive yesterday.

I got the other things I bought for the 760 Thinkpad yesterday in the mail. Both work fine. With the CD drive I was able to install the win98 drivers for the Linksys ethernet card and managed to get high speed internet to this pentium 1 laptop. With the second hard drive I was able to start both a Red Hat 9 Linux install and also a Debian Linux 3.0 install. But the Debian Linux kept crashing at the end of the base install. Also the Red Hat 9 needs more memory so I will have to wait for the 32Mb RAM to arrive and should probably afford another 32M RAM chip in the future.
