I downloaded an iso and burnt it onto a CD, and boot from that.
The file was called 'current.iso' and is 2+ weeks old.
I now run up Emilfm highlight the uci file and click 'my dsl' within Emilfm and that puts the Opera ikon on the desktop just for that session.
The main practical problems are running out of ram and swap space and getting the printer running.
Whatever I did to create the swap file, I've not managed to re-create and I think a 256 Mb or bigger would be a good idea.
If anyone else is using DSL for real then getting a practical working system must lead to the same challenges time and time again.
Firefox (?) mopping up all the system resources and not being able to print does stop it being used for any long term serious purpose.
I'd have thought a hack to delete /tmp files etc etc would be crude but effective.
