Thanks for the reply, Chris. However That is what I was doing when I started this thread. But since I have reinstalled and reconfigured so many times, I thought I would start over again from scratch with a different CF.
Here is my present setup. I have a 128 meg cf with a 60 meg hda1 and the rest as hda2. both partitions were formatted with ext2 with hda1 set as boot.
I did a frugal install to hda1. I pointed home and opt to hda2. I also pointed restore and myDSL to hda2 during the install process. After the installation I downloaded three apps with the download directory of /opt. All three installed properly and I had a myDSL sub menu with all three apps within. I then executed emelfm and moved festival from /opt to /mnt/hda2 which should put it at the root of hda2 in my understanding. Then I rebooted.
I watched the boot up process and when the checking for myDSL apps line appeared, no apps were found. When the boot up process completed, abiword and imagemagick both had icons on the desk top and worked properly. There was no mydsl submenu. I checked /mnt/hda2 with emelfm and festival was still there. I highlighted /mnt/hda2/festival and clicked the emelfm mydsl button and it installed festival. Also the myDSL sub menu appeared with the two festival entries within.
I rebooted again with the same results. Festival was not recognized, abiword and imagemagick were still OK. and festival had to be manually installed with emelfm even though it is in the root of hda2. I hope this step by step description will help shed some light on my problem.
Again, thanks for all your help and patience in helping me solve this problem
