2  Damn Small Linux / HD Install / Installed, but Boot Loader Problem on: June 17, 2015, 04:40:29 PM
I started DSL install.Selected multiple users.  Got message "installed" Next came something about boot loader. I clicked on that, but nothing is happening. I don't think the process is finished. CD has not ejected as I would expect.

Dell Dimension 4550. 1GB RAM, 30GB HDD. Had LinuxMint 17 Mate installed with 2 partitions, hda1, and hda2. Installed DSL to hda1. What Am I supposed to do now? What about updates? Security? I got question about using ext2 or ext3 file system, and that ext 2 was for slower systems. Well what catagory does the 4550 with P4 2.4 Ghz with 1 GB RAM fit into? I selected ext3. I kept getting security warning for every site I went to when running Firefox from the Live CD. Since The live is running from root, I can understand that, but is very annoying. Will I have that behavior after I am running from the HDD? I plan to use AdBlock Plus and NoScript then. I just planned on having 2 partitions, one for / and another for /home. any advice for partitioning? hda1 is 4 + GB and hda2 takes up the rest of the drive .
