I have a Dell Inspiron 8100 and one of its quirks is that in order to not hang on boot and use pcmcia you need to modify /etc/pcmcia/config.opts. This is fine; I just want to know how I can actually modify this file in the KNOPPIX filesystem in the ISO permanently. Otherwise most of what I want to do with DSL is moot.

Thanks!

These remastering guides are a bit old, but might still work:

However it seems you should be able to set DSL to restore your modified /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file  (http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/persistence.html) automatically on each boot. Then, if cardmgr is already started by the time the configuration file is replaced, put "killall -HUP cardmgr" in the /opt/bootlocal.sh file to restart it.

EDIT: I forgot about the fact the laptop actually hangs when the wrong PCMCIA command is sent. Perhaps try using the "nopcmcia" boot command and start cardmgr manually in /opt/bootlocal.sh after the right config files have loaded.
