I've just tried the 2.0RC1.
I want to use it to get online on a 233Mhz/32Mb ram Computer. So i'm testing with mem=32m on my 1.1 Ghz duron.
1 small problem: the numlock led is always off, even if the num-pad is active(type numbers from it)
2 improvements:
1: I use a pppoe connection. I could connect to the internet only after giving the command:
route add default ppp0
(the connection is detected fine, the ip's are being retrived...., i just must add the route)
2. the swap file creation: at least on my computer, it wanted to create it only ig the fat(32) partition was unmounted(Appeared a "Sorry no dos partions found..." with it mounted as root or normal user), then it complained that the partition isn't mounted and closed, without enableing the swapfile.
I had to mount the partition, and give: swapon /dev/hda3/knoppix.swp to use it.
A, is there a way to use some yahoo messanger client?, i could only find icq, irq  and such
Apart from that: Great work!

you can download it from DSL Repository.

MyDSL -> Net -> ymess.dsl

That's version independent

Not sure if this has been reported but with 2.0rc1 it seems both my Linksys PCMCIA WPC-11 rev 3 wireless NIC card and my D-Link DWL-122G are not working. It does get detected at boot but I cant configure them for net access.

These two cards work perfectly with 1.5

I got an error message when I used K3b: DCOP communications error (K3b)

Could not read network connection list.

Please check that the "dcopserver" program is running!

BTW. I can use K3b on my PC but cannot use in my ACER laptop. It got the other 2 error messages:-

Could not find mime type

Could not start process Unknown protocol 'file'..

I am using a micro mother board running DSL from a frugal install on a 512MB CF card.  The new 2.0 does not recognize my NIC.  It's a Realtek RTL-8139.  (This same hardware worked fine under 1.2 -> 1.5).  When I run NetCardConfig from the control panel, it responds with "No supported network cards found".  On boot up, I don't see the usual "Found ETH0, backgrounding DHCP request" type message.
