I am new to linux as well as dsl. But at the moment I have run out of time and have no time left to format my disk for the next 10 days. My disk is sqapped and my register is clogged and bloathed.
Yet I need to use my pc.
I heard of dsl and it might just be the cure I need.
I need to run it inside winxp after boot.
I have a laptop with 512 mb ram and p mobile (3 or 4 years old) with 1.7 ghz Cpu.
Can I get pointers where to read up on how to run dsl from inside winxp? All the functionality I will be needing is a browser and a notepad/writer and maybe calc.
I have tried knoppix live CD but it was so slow. Impossible to use. Even slower then winxp. Will I get speed from using DSL? That is running purely from memory?
Can someone pls tell what I need to do to get dsl embedded running? And just to mention it, my drive is formatted in NTFS:-( I have currently about 900 mb free disk space. How can I save files, like txt files? Will dsl recognize my no-name USB 1.1 thumdrive or my hacked Ipodshuffle?
Can someone give links or a easy to understand laymans language guide to what I need to do to get things working?
I am in so much pain, pls help me.
