Test and Trials of Vintage Laptops

Rating: 2 votes, 3.50 average.
AWESOME! I just downloaded some Windows 95 floppies (14 of them. I have a CD, but no drive in the laptop in question) for my Canon Notejet 486 laptop. Got it installed (the disks are preregistered to someone who worked at McDonalds), and grabbed my PCMCIA wireless NIC and driver disk. Came back, plugged it in, and loaded up the drivers, only to remember (duh) that I have to get the PCMCIA controller drivers installed first. d'oh! Well, the generic WIndows 95 drivers didn't work, and neither did the Intel ones, so that is where I stand right now. *sigh* post on the forums for help, close the laptop, and walk away for now. Come back a little later to find a bluescreen upon opening the laptop, and inverted colors. Great. Reboot and everything's fine, but still can't go to standby or clost the lid without a bluescreen.

Can anyone help me with the PCMCIA drivers and bluescreen?
