Well, I muscled my way through it but I think my solution is quite ugly, i.e. bad,bad,bad use of directories. Here are my basic steps.
1) Create the qemu image for larger 2d harddrive
(using qemu-img details are found here -- http://damnsmalllinux.org/cgi-bin....73;st=0 and here -- http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-doc.html#SEC15
2) Placed file in qemu folder of embedded dsl directory
3) Altered .bat file and designated new file as /hdc
4) started DSL
5) went to Terminal
6) sudo su to Root
7) mounted new drive: mount /dev/hdc became /mnt/hdc
8) cd /mnt
9) mke2fs hdc
10) to check existence: cat /proc/mounts
11) chown -R dsl /mnt/hdc
12) exit (go back to dsl)
13) cd /mnt/hdc
14) download and successfully installed j2sdk. set jre in PATH, verified version
15) Shutdown and restarted machine
16) mounted hdc with GUI tool
17) went to terminal and cd /mnt/hdc
18) j2sdk directory was there
19) YATTAH! -- Japanese for Hooray!
I would like to actually get away from using the /ramdisk to hold the /home for the dsl user. How can I do this?
