Well, the only thing I want is to have a working DSL on my new computer with SATA-DVD-Rom and SATA-harddisk support.
As I need DSL only on an USB-pen, I could install it via CD-Rom on my old computer and run it then from USB on my new computer.
Nevetheless, there is the problem with the nforce-onboard-networkcard. This is not supported with kernel 2.4.26. Therefore I wanted to try kernel 2.4.31 from the DSL 2.1b version.
I tried the newest Knoppix, but this has the 2.6.xx kernel.
In order to know if the next DSL release with kernel 2.4.34 will work with my new computer, I have checked for another distro with a newer 2.4.xx kernel. The only I found was slackware. Slax, the live-cd, only supports the kernel up to 2.4.28. I don't know if it is worth to try it (burn it to CD).
If it is only a question of some days, I will wait for the new DSL and hope that everything works well.
But who can tell if it is only a question of days or if it is a question of weeks or months till we have the first new release candidate?
