I thought I would try DSL. I have a Toshiba Satellite 2140 CDS with an impressive 32MB.
I booted from the CD and all started looking good. I got the following messages
Scaning for USB devices... Done.
Accessing DSL image at /dev/scd0...
Total memory found: 29232 kB
Creating /ramdisk (dynamic size=21300k) on shared memory...Done.

Starting init process.

Setting hostname to box Done.
Running Linux Kernel 2.4.31.
Processor 0 is AMD-K6(tm) 3D processor 451MHz, 64 KB Cache
At this point, it gives a very good impression of 'hanging'. I think it's stuck.
Is there something I can do to get it further?
