Heh, I hadn't used a full hd-install lately because now most of my machines have at least 32mb.
But, I remembered that on full hd-installs, apt is the system to use, so I decided to try it again (using a full hd-install anyways).
Did some tinkering on the packages (since not everything will install right off), and loaded mydsl > gnu-utils.
Built kernel, and loaded it into dsl-embedded's qemu scripts, and init successfully executed automatically. (Still had the knoppix image not found, but now I remember dsl-embedded's minirt is slightly different, and mine was based off the cd .iso's)
Using a full hd-install or frugal should not matter in this case IMO.
I think the packages that I used on the frugal probably had some conflicted somewhere.
If there is some sort of reason why using a full hd-install for kernel compilation is required, I'd be really interested to know.
Additional note: following juanito's guide also resulted in the same problem
