How about instead of attempting the impossible, put DSL onto a compact flash / memory stick like in 'off site / related links' and either boot from it or mount from boot disk.

By using the flash method you could have a portable 'hd install' with all the upgrades and software that you want.

I am setting up MySQL 4 / PHP 4 / Apache 2 / XMail etc on my system and once I am happy with the setup - copy it to compact falsh and use the IDE adapter avaliable.

The good thing about DSL is that it not cluttered with things like KDE, which I find graphically very good, but find it hard to understand the file structures below.

I am curious too about writing to a RW-CD. Am a linux newbie, and am curious if one could set it up to run in RAM to do this.

At present I am less tempted by DSL's size than by the possibility of a "Dam-Fast-to-Boot-Linux", especially if it can be combined with a cheap laptop that does not take forever to get to the boot-up.
