thanks, sorry for my lack of knowledge
OK, I've tried two boot methods, and though I made progress, neither method worked:
(1) the pdf you recommended asked me to partition the harddrive, then run /usr/sbin/frugal_instal.sh I did the partitioning using cfdisk.
But frugal_instal.sh doesn't seem to exist, at least not in the path set up by DSL. Am I supposed to locate it on the net somewhere and download it? The problem will be how to make it accessible to DSL, which is running only from memory and CD. I would have thought it would be included on the DSL CD, but it's not there, or at least I can't find it.
(2) I found a link on the DSL site containing install instructions:
which explains how to install in a jiffy.
Here I was told to run a script dsl-hdinstall. This worked, to a point.
At its conclusion the script instructed me to reboot with the CD out of the drive, and this resulted in the letter L followed by a long string of 99s (e.g. "99 99 99 99 ...") on the screen; nothing further happened after that.
I rebooted DSL from the CD and tried to finish the instructions. I was supposed to run a script called mkliloboot. However this script doesn't exist either, at least not in the path set by DSL.
