I boot my laptop with dsl4.2.1 CD and run "install to hard drive" to /dev/hda1. home and opt are both set to hda1 (specified in lilo.conf).

I install NX and gtk2 from mydsl browser. But after reboot, NX and gtk2 are gone. I have to reinstall them. How to keep them in hard drive?

many thanks

If you have persistent opt and home, I assume you have a frugal install. With this type of system, everything outside of home and opt are installed to ram and disappear when you reboot. With a persistent home you can save the mydsl extensions to a directory in /home/dsl and point DSL to them with the mydsl boot option. For example, I have a "mydsl" directory in my persistent home, so in that case you could use this boot option:

if you don't mind re-loading the extensions at every boot, then you
put the extensions in

if you want to load them manually from the menu, then you put them in
