I've posted detailed DSL installation instructions, documenting what I did with two Mitsubishi Amity CN laptops which have no USB ports and cannot boot from CD-ROM.  The instructions should, with minor tweaks, work just as well for any similar older hardware that can't boot from CD-ROM.

The Amity CN is a circa 1997 133MHz Pentium subnotebook, 48MB RAM, 1.2GB hard drive.  Performance running DSL 3.0.1 is very good indeed.  I did a frugal installation but used persistent /opt, /home, and mydsl to effectively create what Roberts calls a hybrid installation.  I do use some applications not currently available as DSL extensions so the persistent /opt gives me a place to put them without eating up my RAM disk.  


For the developers:  I've also been saying nice things about DSL in the O'Reilly Linux Dev Center blog.
