1) Hmm, Not Sure. Upgrade flux-box?
2) To change bootup procedures edit the lilo.conf file in the /etc/ dir. The NeoMagic Card 'Mini-Tut' I wrote on this fourm shows a more detailed way to get a framebuffered console and (rather by accident) how to add kernel parameters, go check it out.
3) Well, If you have internet then you can use 'apt-get' to get diffrent software (like gcc and make). If you don't, well unless someone can correct me on this, you're screwed. And by 'Non-Linux software' do you mean Windoze software? Use WINE or one of it's diffrent versions. Or if you mean DOS software, get DOSEMU. (DSL doesn't have make or gcc, so you have to get them when installing non-binary packages, also a thread on here about that too...)
4) I think there is something on here about how to uninstall using the 'apt-get' utils or something of the sort, do a search.
