|Interesting. So, the scripts you've made are like automatic macros that start up when you boot. They basically setup everything for you, so you don't have to continue doing tedious work.|
No, the scripts _are_ the actual "boot" , they are used for running DSL emulated using qemu on either a Windows or a Linux host.
The commands starting with START qemu\qemu.exe or qemu/qemu must be on a single line in the scripts, they are folded in my posts.
I haven't found a way to attach files to a post, so you'll have to make do with cut'n'paste from the post.
When booting the physical host machine from USB, I use this in syslinux.cfg :
APPEND ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init initrd=minirt24.gz nomce noapic qemu frugal lang=dk host=fve3boot BOOT_IMAGE=knoppix desktop=jwm noicons mydsl=sda1/xtra/mydsl
(APPEND is one long line)
The USB must be sda1 at boot, otherwise the mydsl directory wont be found. I use a different backup.tar.gz for the settings when booting directly from USB, and this one is in the root of the USB drive.
