I've installed LNO on a netbook's CF, because LNO can run without X,
using a FrameBuffer.
But this netbook shows all <storage> as /dev/sd*.
So far I've been running the LNO from linux files, but now
I want to have a proper N-O/AosFS partition, like I can do on my PC.
For this I need to format-AoFS one CF partition.
But Partition.Tool only knows about IDE
How can I solve this problem?
With difficulty I could probably run A2-CD via the USB.
Would that allow me to make a N-O type partition on
the /dev/sd* ?

PS. I hope to get on the forum.
It's annoying having to jump-thru-hoops again, since I
already paid my mail-list membership in 199?
