I'm setting up an old Thinkpad 600e laptop using Xubuntu. The machine has only 160MB of memory (all I could find - 32MB onboard, + 2 x 64MB expansions), so it's paging like mad during normal use.
I'm wondering if there's a way to achieve something like Vista's ReadyBoost on this laptop to improve it's performance.
I have a reasonably recent PC(MCIA) Card for reading flash memory, and a 256MB Memory Stick Pro that suits, but this does't show up as a volume when I insert it. (I've spent several evenings with Professor Google trying to solve this, but to to avail).
I'm using a 3Com PC Card for networking, so I know the PCMCIA subsystem is up and running.
A small USB Key I plugged in worked fine for transferring files, so I figure hotplug support is working too.
