Yes, you can save changes you make to your DSL.
Its explained quite well on the default home page of the Dillo web browser, it should open when you first start DSL. Click on the link 'Saving Your Configuration'
Basically you need to edit /home/dsl/filetool.lst before you run the Backup tool.
You add the directories you want to Backup to the filetool.lst file
You can then run the Rackup/Restore tool with the sda1 option (mount sda1 or whatever your USB Pendrive is first) from the DSLpanel
Oh and Tarisoto, I have been messing about, on and off, for years with Linux distros and I keep coming back to DSL. So well done for finding it on your 2nd try
I hope I helped
Edit within a Linux command line? (scoffs)
I wouldn't know the first thing about doing that... Unfortunately, I am a total Linux newbie who's grown-up within the user-friendliness of Windows.
I do wish to learn about Linux because I am very curious and have heard many good things about it. However, I do not have many resources in my area. Actually, I am the only person in my class who takes an interest in learning about Linux. Though we don't have the resources... But I am trying to find some books online that might be helpful. (Speaking of which, I am open to recommendations.)
I probably shouldn't be messing with DSL at the moment, at least, not until I understand the basics of Linux. However, even though I managed to get it to boot just fine from USB, I still don't know anything about installing it, or other distributions to my hard drive. My first distribution, Berry Linux, have proved to be extremely difficult for me, especially since I don't understand the process of mounting all these devices and what-not. (But I do understand the partitioning part just fine...)
Anyways, I appreciate your response. Though I must apologize, as I imagine that I must be a bit of a pain. (Not understanding how to follow your troubleshooting instructions.)
