1  Damn Small Linux / USB booting / Re: making a bootable DSL usb pen drive. on: February 06, 2018, 07:45:13 PM
many thanks for your reply.

i have tried the methods described at
but with no success.  Method one booted but generated a kernal panic, 2 and 3 would not boot, and i am afraid i have to say that method 4 completely lost me.

I feel i may have to give up on this until i have learned a lot more.

On most other distros i have tried, i have been able to download an iso of the distro in question and then just simply use the dd command to make a bootable usb.  Does such an image exist for DSL?  (i have tried all images i can find and none seem to work in this way).
2  Damn Small Linux / USB booting / making a bootable DSL usb pen drive. on: February 04, 2018, 10:49:07 PM

i am relatively new to Linux (about 12 months).  I have tried several different flavors of Linux, but because my hardware is old (12 years plus) and slow, i am drawn towards small distros.  I would love to try DSL but i am finding it hard to work out how to create a bootable usb pen drive.   In all other flavors of Linux i have tried (and i know i have most probably been spoiled here), it has been quite a simple operation, either using a tool built into a distro, or via the command line using dd.  With DSL this is not working for me, and most of the links i follow on-line do not seem to explain the procedure at all clearly.

Is there a simple, easy to follow, step by step, guide that will show me how to get a pen drive up and running with DSL?  (the simpler the better).

many thanks
