Memory - Give it as much as the laptop can take. Ebay is fine for older ram like this, that isn't sold anymore, or if it is, damn expensive.
Wired - 16-bit Xircom cards are great
Floppy options - sure. After booting, mount the floppy, browse there, open syslinux.cfg in an editor, and just add "fromusb" to the "default" and "dsl" sections, right after the list of other boot options on the kernel lines.
Serial and trackpad - yeah. No need to reboot, just get out of X, then either change the mouse device in .xserverrc or use xsetup.sh. startx, and you have the newly selected mouse operational.
If you'd like to use them at the same time, you need XFree86 or Xorg for that.
There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
Windows is not a virus. A virus does something!
