|You can't install to your USB drive when running from DSL embedded.|
DSL embedded is actually runing inside a "Virtual Computer" that is contained inside a program called QEmu.
It cannot see your REAL computer hardware like USB devices.
However, you can take the dsl.iso file that is contained inside your embedded zip file and use a program like Nero to burn it to a CD-R disk. Just make sure to use the File -> Burn Image menu to do this. You are burning an image to the CD-R disk and NOT just moving the dsl.iso file over to your "NewCD" project tree.
Then use your CD-R disk to boot up DSL. You may need to set your BIOS to enable "Boot from CDROM drive", or you may need to set the boot order to try the CDROM drive first.
Once you are booted from the CDROM, you can then use the menu item to install it to a USB pen drive.
I am trying to do this but heres my problem: i dont know how to tell if its even SEEING my usb drive! mount tells me nothing, and I'm completly new to linux (save unix experiance and some knoppix tomfoolery). someone really needs to write a complete morons guide to getting this to work. Someone please help me!
my AIM is DerFeuerKommt, any contact there would be greatly appreciated!
Right now I'm running DSL in a VMWare window on my desktop, and I like it I might even be brave enough to throw it on my desktop completly at some point
