Posted by linux_gal on Sep. 15 2005,19:47I did a non frugal installation to HD. Some ".dsl" extensions work and others
(.tar.gz) just don't go. Got the icons and all. Can I use the dsl-load for that also?
this is for a non networked computer in the backwoods, so whatever I get, has to be
downloaded and brought to it. It there some other script floating around to use?
Thanks very much!

Posted by linux_gal on Sep. 16 2005,15:51Well, I made my mastered CD... I had a few problems burning it
(strange IDE maybe) but the iso remained so I used it. Then after booting
the cd, I copied the pieces that were missing from my HD install. I'm sure I'll
discover a few things I missed, but for now, I'm a happy camper!
Still, I was hoping I'd find some magic script to use so I'd have a few extra
minutes at my favorite book of the moment.
I think a newbie would have been totally lost.
