Dreamcarrior, I just learned something very interesting. When I had trouble creating a capitalized folder name on a VFAT file system, I was using "mkdir" from BusyBox, WHICH IS A MINIMALIST LINUX COMMAND SYSTEM.
The full-power "mkdir" is available in MyDSL extension package COREUTILS.UCI. So assuming folder name capitalization is your problem, maybe the full-power "mkdir" in COREUTILS.UCI is the cure. I would like to hear if you solve your problem. Sounds like a great idea - giant DVD of software.
Crossing posts here. Post from Mr Hat showed up while I was entering above.
Mr Hat: I am currently booting a customized DSL CD which was assembled on an ext2 filesystem -- subfolder under /ramdisk running full KNOPPIX LINUX. The "mkisofs" then took the ext2 folder as input and output an iso file on a VFAT external USB drive. Said iso then burned onto CD with K3B. It was this CD, built on an ext2 fs, which refused to boot when trying various forms such as knoppix_dir=/cdrom/KNOPPIX; knoppix_dir=KNOPPIX; et cetera.
