|Well, I suppose that depends on how you format your cd... and if it's still readable natively, etc.|
I'd just recommend you to edit the .iso directly.
Let me just say, ^thehatsrule^, that you have been a huge help. Thanks so much for the thoughts.
You are correct, editing the .iso (using ISO Master) did the trick. All cheatcodes added to the default APPEND line work like a freaking charm!
The cheatcodes I am using are: toram nodhcp noeject host=xxxx restore=cdrom mydsl=cdrom
I did run into one issue with DSL 3.3 not liking the "mydsl=cdrom" cheatcode. During the boot process, it would install the extensions correctly, but then give the following errors:
|mount: /dev/cdrom already mounted or /mnt/auto/cdrom busy|
mount: according to mtab, /dev/scd0 is already mounted on /mnt/auto/cdrom
Unable to mount device cdrom
Press enter to continue:
It is critical that my machine be able to reboot without a keyboard attached so I just tried an older version (DSL 2.4) and it worked fine. Maybe after mounting the CD to install the extensions the CD needs to be unmounted and that got changed somewhere between 2.4 and 3.3. I also seem to remember that 2.4 would automatically scan the CD for extensions and install if it found any, even without the cheatcode - so maybe that's why it's working.
In any case, my problem is solved - thanks to everyone for their help!
