This just occurred to me after inserting an old, unmarked DSL disc I'd burned some time ago.  Yeah I know; my bad, should have labelled it.

Anyway, you know the index.html file at the root level of the CD, titled `Why are you still using windows?' that reads;
You need to make sure your bios is set to boot from the cdrom.
After fixing your bios reboot your computer with the CD in your drive.
I hope you like Damn Small Linux!
[Kind of made me chuckle, because I wasn't running Windows at the time, and haven't for several months.]

Would be nice if it also mentioned what version of DSL you're looking at, just so you can check the version number without booting it.  Of course, a felt pen would work just as well, if not better...



PS: congratulations on v4.0 .  :-)  Runs very nicely on an Asus EEE, although the weird monitor dimensions [800x480] call for a little user input to sort things out.

Q: What is the difference between
     a joke, and a lie?
A: A lie tends to obscure the truth,
     while a joke often reveals it.

After booting, click Apps->DSLpanel->System Stats.
cat /usr/share/doc/dsl/release.txt

DSL has shown the version number in the boot messages for a while now. When I booted last night, the last line before the "Dsl secure" script was Running DSL 3.4.4
