Need to boot from floppy to USB as CD going South and unable to replace.
USB works from CD boot with command - dsl fromhd=/dev/sda2
same command does not work from floppy
get error msg - can't find KNOPPIX filesystem and then drops to a very limited shell

You just need to use the "fromusb" boot code

Thanks.  I tried that and I still get the message above.  Used both the bootfloppy and the bootfloppy-usb.  Same results for both.

Which version of DSL are you using? The USB-HDD script was broken on at least one release candidate. I'm using DSL 4.2-release (current) from USB-HDD stick now and no problems.

You may close out this posting.

Thanks for your help.  I re-imaged the floppy and executed the command
boot:  dsl fromusb
and it now works.

Again thank you.
