Can you boot from the DSL CD?

Have you tried the pendrive install scripts when you boot the DSL CD like this:

boot:  install

What does your target computer BIOS support for booting from a USB device? USB-ZIP or USB-HDD or ???

boot dsl (don't plug in your usb pen yet)
open emelfm filemanager
enter /mnt into one of the text boxes
you will find a list of mountpoints
plug in you usb pen and wait 20 secs
you will find a new mount point appears
that is your usb pen
