Sorry, my assumtion in my previous contribution was not correct:
the reason for "cannot find knoppix image ...dropping to very restricted shell" was not the version of DSL_embedded!
I tried to check what I did in detail to get it running, especially which module caused the problem:
Initially I tried to install DSL on a CD (with some other stuff) and wanted to be able to run DSL as well booted from Isolinux as in the embedded vesion under QEmu from the same medium (CD in this case).
To omit having all the stuff twice (standard and embedded) I roughly check for differences, but obviously not carefully enough.
As a result of this, I started DSL under qemu using the non-embedded, CD version of the "minirt24.gz". This is different from the embedded version with the same filename!
Using the embedded version of "minirt24.gz" when starting DSL trough qemu (dsl-windows.bat) works fine, even with DSL version 3.01.
I didn't check yet if the embedded version of "minirt24.gz" works when starting from isolinux, bat one can separate both files in different directories and call from the batch-file used to start with qemu the version you need.
As far as I can see, all other files (especially the big, knoppix) do not have to be kept twice.
Good success Brekki
