Posted by Juanito on April 27 2008,04:32If you look in the right-click menu, one of the options is to install to usb. Note that it would be good to double-check that your machine bios allows you to boot from usb before you start...
You can also look in the dsl wiki for more details on how to set things up manually to be able to boot from usb.

it tries to find the nessessary driver on the web
and it cannot connect to the site
thus terminanating the whole fn thing!
ill have to take a good look at DSL wiki
Posted by roberts on April 28 2008,23:59If the pendrive install script is trying to download installation files from the web then you have a very old version of DSL. Current versions have needed files in the base.
