972SCSI interface/ Networking with I7500 & Mandrake
- Sep 7, 2000Hi All
System: inspiron 7500 ( P-III, 700 Mhz, software dvd,
running both win98 and Mandrake 7.1 )
And I have an HP External CD-RW drive connected to my Home PC , that
drive cost me a pretty penny, hence i want to know is there a way to
be able to use the CD-Writer with my Inspiron notebook as well ??
can anybody out there advise me with the best way to do that ? which
is more feasible/Possible :
1- Buy a networking pcmci card for the inspiron, Network it with my
PC and then use the CD-RW drive ?? - i already have a NIC in the PC -
If so, do u recommend any particular card brand that would work well
with Mandrake ?
2- Is there any kind of SCSI interfaces that i can get for the
inspiron and connect it directly to the SCSI chain ?! that would also
work with linux ofcoure , If there are any , does Dell sell them ?
Any help would be appreciated :-)
