If "restore" option is not selected, does the DSL-N save the changes?  Which is one of my most concern.
It does create the ramdisk as the DSL does, runs from there right?
Where can I find some documentations about the DSL-N.
Homepage has almost no further information about the OS.

Thanks in advance.

DSL-N uses the same backup/restore mechanism as DSL. Both name their backup file backup.tar.gz. Therefore it is a common mistake to restore a DSL backup onto DSL-N.

If you are going to be booting both then you should use the manually specified option restore=hdxy and keep the two backup.tar.gz files separate as one could easily overwrite the other.

It has been suggested to name the DSL-N backup file something other then backup.tar.gz.

I only suggest the base norestore option to ensure a clean pristine boot to start using DSL-N. Where you choose to place your backup file after this initial boot is, of course, up to you.
