Several options here...
Copying the files from a DSL cd to another cdr does not make a bootable DSL cd.
1. burn your .iso image to a cdr in session-at-once mode ( mode 1 multisession )
then a second burn containing your .dsl files in either the / or /optional folder.
2. in windows, use an iso program like ultraiso or winiso to add the folders and
files, making a new .iso file from the original one.
3. If you are using DSL 0.7.1, you can use emelfm's mydsl button to load the .dsl file.
..highlight it and click the mydsl button.
4. If you are using DSL 0.7.0, use can type 'mydsl-load' in a shell, and load a
.dsl file. follow prompts and examples...
5. If you are familiar with mkisofs and cdrecord, you can burn your cdr using
the '-multi ' function, make a new small .iso with your .dsl files and folders in it,
and burn a second session with the "-msinfo" function to ADD the .iso to your cdr.
6. During boottime, you also have the mydsl= option ,
which tells DSL what partition your .dsl file is located in
( you still need the .dsl's in the / or /optional of your chosen partition, for example " dsl mydsl=hda4 " )
7. Also, search the forums for 'mkmydsl' , and get some guidance in
using the mkmydsl script to build a new .iso file.
