I am open to correction, being a newcomer here, but I think that statement is wrong, and may be the reason that questions about persistent storage for DSL-Embedded are so annoyingly common.

Thank you for correcting me....sometimes i presume to know more than i do  :D

After reviewing this thread, I will change the virtual harddisk to have write premission for user dsl. This will then be consistent with the permissions on the pen drives. Currently, the perms are consistent with that of the typical hard drives, i.e., root only. This should lessen the confusion and make for a smoother user experience. This will only affect the qemu virtual harddisk known as hdb which was setup for a shared persistent store between Qemu and native BIOS booting.

I'm a noob trying to learn DSL embedded on a FAT32 formatted USB 30 meg drive attached to a WIN2k laptop (company-issued, unmodifyable).  I've been reviewing the forums and have picked up on filetool.lst.  for now, I'm trying to figure out what filename to add to the filetool.lst to save the desktop configuration.  For example, If I switch to Desktop - Style - Tree_and_Moon, I want to save this when restarting.  I've investigated Fluxbox documentation via Google and have not been able to find the file mentioned (~Fluxbox\startup) in DSL.

I'm sure there are other questions I'll be asking later

How are you looking?

If you're in emelfm, you need to click the H near the top to see the hidden files (ones starting with a . ie .fluxbox\init not ~Fluxbox\startup)
The style entry is right at the bottom.

I don't know about the command line though (that's why they have emelfm)
I guess you could just change directory to .fluxbox then do a ls -l

Of course, you could also make your own style - copy one of the /usr/share/fluxbox/styles entries to .fluxbox/styles and edit it to how you like it, and then change the init - that is one of the first things I did, to get my normal windows background.
