It looks like this system has the NeoMagic chip. (http://delicate-linux.net/forum/showthread.php?tid=288)

Have a look at http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/vga_xxx.html You should be able to get it working with the framebuffer.

When you are logged into the forum: at the top left, two lines below where your username appears in bold there is a link "Show unread posts since last visit". At one time this was not working properly, but it does now. Very useful to keep up with any new posts in the forum. I use this as the bookmarked page for the DSL forum & have my login set to stay logged in.

I think this project is well & truly dead - probably best to head over to tinycorelinux.net where the main developers from DSL went, or elase try puppy linux, or one of the other 'minimalist' distributions (basiclinuc, µlinux,....)

In the settings on your phone there should be a 'tethering & portable hotspot' item (or something similar -(on my Sony Xperia it is under wireless & networks -> more ->tethering & portable hotspot.

This will set up a portable wireless hotspot using your phones data connection. The phone will generate, or allow you to specify a hotspot name & WPA key. Use this name & WPA key to connect using the wireless connection from DSL as you would to any other wireless network.
5  Damn Small Linux / HD Install / Re: Persistence problems at HD install on: October 18, 2013, 12:36:57 AM
I think the wiki is missing some steps.
Under persistent it should go:

1.      boot without the home= & opt= boodcodes.
2.      copy home & opt to hda1.
3.      remove home & opt from filetool.lst in /opt.
4.      add the home= & opt= bootcodes to menu.lst
5.      reboot (make sure the backup option is selected so a new backup file is written without home & opt in it)

To make the export Path persist across reboots you will need to put it in bootlocal.sh. Once you have removed /opt from filetool.lst as above the export PATH will persist over reboots. Note that bootlocal is executed as root.

This is what I have always used to set up persistence.
6  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Show unread posts since last visit - not working on: July 28, 2013, 11:46:57 PM
The 'Show unread posts since last visit' link isn't working. It has recently (some time in last few months) stopped reporting any unread posts. I just assumed at first the project/forum had died again. I now have to use the 'View the most recent posts on the forum' link at the bottom to view recent activity. Not the same as just viewing any posts since I last checked in at the forum. Can some one please check the functioning of the 'Show unread posts since last visit' link.
7  Damn Small Linux / Release Candidates / Re: Release Candidate for DSL 4.11 on: August 15, 2012, 11:28:58 PM
Intel PRO wireless driver ipw2100 is not included, and, of course, XVesa cannot do 1400x1050
It is a laptop, Step-5 Pentium-M 1395mhz, 502mb RAM

Have you looked at the wiki for framebuffer modes: http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/vga_xxx.html

The wireless card should work with ndiswrapper :http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ndiswrapper/index.php?joomla/index.php
