1  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / I am trying to create an image of an ultra light weight Linux that is deployable on: January 10, 2013, 04:37:45 PM
I am trying to create an image of an ultra light weight Linux that is deploy-able across different hardware.

For example I am using a dual core desktop PC MB to install Linux onto an old IDE laptop hard disk.

I then want to place this hard drive into:

1.  A 486 laptop with 8 MB RAM, 528 MB HD.  I tried this with Tiny Core Plus.  This distro installed and booted from the hard disk. However, I received error reading hard disk when I inserted the HD into the 486 Laptop.

2. Pentium 4 laptop designed to run Windows XP.  The old 528 MB HD won't fit in this laptop.  It's too thick.  So I use its original 30 GB HD. Again the HD will boot Tiny core plus on the desktop.  However it hangs when attempting to boot in the Pentium 4 laptop.

Now I have successfully created an image of Linux Mint 9 LXDE that will boot successfully on an Intel Mac or any PC running at 400+ MHz with 512 MB RAM.

I am sharing my effort via dropbox here:

Now, I am trying to do something similar with DSL.  I am NOT having much luck with DSL.   First, I can't seem to install it to the HD.  Would somebody explain how I can do this?

I have created a NOT DSL live CD which actually boots successfully but I can't figure out how to install it to the HD.  Would somebody explain how I can do this?

Thanks in advance!
