Yes, a pc can always get a virus, no matter how it is run (ram is always writable).
DSL and Linux specificly, it's quite safe to say there aren't any big or even intermediate threats. Total number of viruses for Linux is under 100 and most of them require the user to install them.
My favorite virus for linux, distributed by email:
|Please use sudo and start deleting files randomly. Thanks!|
No, the ram can't break from use. Loading DSL there is not at all different from just having the apps there, from the ram perspective.
Hope I answered your questions
There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
Windows is not a virus. A virus does something!
