Well, What I have done is to create a second harddisk image which I mount to /mnt/hdb. It is 500 megs in size. I boot into DSL, download the samba.dsl file and md5sum.txt and cp them to /mnt/hdb. I then check the file md5sum and then reboot DSL toram init mode 2. I remount /mnt/hdb and recheck the md5sum and then run the mkmydsl script.
Since /dev/hda is at 98% usage, I tell it to use /mnt/hdb for the archive 'and' the ISO image, and off it goes. It makes the image and I boot off of it next round by altering the qemu-win.bat file. It boots successfully, but with the srror.
By out of space then, do you mean on /mnt/hda? Because /mnt/hdb is 500 meg of empty space, until I do the process above. Do you think that it is just not possible to write the ISO to the same mount point as the .dsl archive (i.e.. /mnt/hdb)? After all, the script does show examples of two separate mount points, one for the file archive, and one to write the ISO.
