Well.... One question comes to mind, if it's a single floppy laptop (I
translate that as meaning it doesn't have a HD), does it even have a PCMCIA
card slot? If it doesn't, does it have an bidirectional parallel port
(isn't that called EPP?). If you have the PCMCIA slot, you'll need to find
a card that is old enough that there was DOS support for it. Hopefully you
can get one that includes the drivers and instructions.

Warning, setting such a thing up is not fun. The next question is, what do
you plan on using for networking software? Such things for DOS weren't
exactly common either.
