Want to Test DSL, new version, keep CD Drive available for anything else, etc...
Download .iso DSL image to Your HD, you may rename image to a short name.
you have to boot now...
Option 1 - download floppy boot image, write it down a floppy.
Option 2 - Burn a CD, with image in your hd
Boot your system from the media you choose before.
At boot options type: dsl bootfrom=/dev/hdax/image-name.iso
Ok, now you will have a running DSL...
Knoppix says that file system can be a fat32, ntfs or reiserfs. Mine is Fat32.
Restriction: Kernel of booting media must be the same of .iso on hd.
(Can be modified to work with other media, like usb memory key.)
Thats all for today, folks...
