I have installed Warp 3 from a CD drive connected to a parallel to SCSI
adapter. Be sure you put the device driver for the drive in the CONFIG.SYS
file on the installation floppies and put
at the top of the CONFIG.SYS or your driver won't be loaded onto the hard disk
and you won't be able to access the CD drive during the second phase of the

You would need to load your PCMCIA drivers from the installation diskettes.
There was a great article on how to do this on the defunct Warped Thinkpad web

there you can adapt to the 730t. Unfortunately, www.os2ss.com seems to be down
