Thanks for the feedback. Please try again when RC2 is posted as there is more work on going in that area. Hopefully RC2 will provide the results that we are looking for. Stay tuned.

Is Firefox 1.5 going to be included sometimes in DSL ? (Firefox 1.0.x is no more supported by Mozilla).

I believe the Firefox 1.5 issue has been discussed before; 1.5 represents increases both in size and resource needs. 1.5 may be good for DSL-N, but with only 50 MB to play with, and a low-powered target, I don't think 1.5 is right for DSL proper.

On The FF front.
I still favour an even smaller distro.
Remove FireFox and mostly every user level App, that sits on-top of X, except fluxbox.

Then you have room to upgrade to a more modern base system
GNU Utils, 2.6 kernel maybe.

basically I would want the CD alone to be almost useless.
except as a way to run apt-get, and install the aps you want to your USB disk, or tmp RamDrive.

and if all the bugs with UnionFS can be worked out, this would be very cool.
maybe it could be called
ESL ... Extremely Small Linux
FSL ... F'ing Small Linux

Firefox should be removed from the base iso.
Firefox phones home. The one in the base is very old and now (after phoning home) displays a red circle with a warning that critical updates are needed. Yet we cannot get these updates. So, we are forced to download a newer firefox or some other browser, anyway. So why waste the space. We have to download it anyway!

Phones home?  No....phoning home is when an application secretly connects to a server, generally for purposes that would be undesired by the user.  Firefox simply checks for updates at a specified interval, which can easily be disabled.

default mydsl=cdrom is not true with extension uci

remastered dsl.iso and missed uci-apps
used cheatcode mydsl=cdrom, and got uci-apps

line 14 in /etc/init.d/dsl-config

line 82 in /etc/init.d/dsl-config
  if [ "$CKMYDSL" == "yes" ] || [ -z $TORAM ]; then
     for FILE in `ls $1/*.uci $1/*.unc 2>/dev/null`
