Hmm, I actually received the same problem.
I was on a new desktop computer today, and it didn't give me any of these problems. Also, I was on an old Win ME computer from 2001 or so today. The desktops worked well.
However, I tried booting from a cd, using "dsl fromusb" in the command box, and I received the same errors. Also, I was using a laptop.
This might pertain to laptops, but I'm not sure. It could have something to do with DSL itself. I figure the usbdrive couldn't find an address to attach itself to; therefore, it couldn't load properly.
I don't know exactly what the cause of the problem is unless I crack open a few computer science books. I do know my laptop is faster than the first few desktop computers I used. I'm using an eMachines m6811 laptop. People can get the specifications for that if they like.
I'm thinking it has to do with the interaction between DSL and the motherboard/whatever-else.
It boots fine from the Live-cd, but not the 512MB sandisk cruzer when using the laptop.
Seems to be a problem with the kernel, the way DSL loads, and maybe some other things. At least that's the gist of it. I figure it has something to do with the motherboard, too.
It seems as though it's one of those problems where a person needs to learn linux and coding to actually fix it. I'd say its a bug, in my humble opinion.
