Doing a simple network is so cheap and easy that I wouldn't think twice.
Windows 2000 has a great new feature called Synchronize that allows one to
carry a synchronized copy of all your data as stored on your desktop on your
laptop. Works much better than Briefcase. Now I realize you may not have W2K
on your 240 or your desktop, but it's something to think about.

Subject: Suggestions on backing up system (repost)
I'm reposting this since it didn't get mailed back to me as part of the
I recently purchased a 240 that I'm having serviced for a faulty
modem. When I get it back, I'd like to back up the entire system so that I
can restore the laptop without using IBM's recovery diskette/CD (my Addonics
CD-RW will not work with the IBM recovery software).
Can people suggest some options for backing up the entire laptop (6.4 GB)?
I've been looking mainly at tape drives, and I'm also wondering if
networking my laptop to my desktop for backing up data would be a good
solution. I also wonder is it possible to back up my entire system with the
CD-RW I already own? I searched through the help section of the Adaptec
software that came with the CD-RW, but there is no mention of backing up an
entire system, only backing up data that would fit onto a single disk.
Any input would be appreciated.
P.S. Thanks to Benjamin Koh and Steve C. for their replies to my recent
inquiry on creating a DOS boot diskette. BTW, if anybody owns an Addonics
CD-RW and would like a DOS bootup diskette, write me.
