Not sure if it will help you but, when I did my install I had some trouble and ended up need to put 'dsl mydsl=hda2' when it asks for the boot options when running the frugal script. I than had to tell it no when it asked if I wanted to specify a different partition for myDSL.

You may edit option in lilo.conf like "... restore=hda2 toram mydsl=hda2 home=hda2 opt=hda2 alsa   " and put all extention into /optional in hda2l. It works for me.

===== lilo.conf =====
lba32          #enable large disk support
timeout=30     #wait 3 seconds before auto-booting
boot=/dev/hda   #put boot loader in MBR of target disk
root=/dev/hda2 #set root to be partition of target disk
APPEND="ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off hda=scsi hdb=scsi hdc=scsi hdd=scsi hde=scsi hdf=scsi hdg=scsi hdh=scsi nomce nodma quiet frugal BOOT_IMAGE=/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX restore=hda3 mydsl=hda3 home=hda3 opt=hda3   "
