Hmmm... Yes... This be a traditional install. I basically just went to the menu option for "install to HD" from the live CD. It seemed like a good idea at the time. And, actually, from what I'm seeing here, it's STILL a good idea.
We're talking about a machine with 64mb RAM. If I were running DSL with the primary system being a 93mb file unpacked into RAM, it wouldn't run much better than it did off the CD. As it is, it runs FAST. I mean FAST to the extent that it comes damn close to my work laptop (P4, 2.5g, 512MB, XP). That in itself is impressive.
Like I said... The system is running awesome, except for this pesky USB key issue.
It's not like I'm a N00b with Linux in general. I'm totally comfortable with much of it. I spent the last year working tech support for digital broadcast servers running Red Hat 4. That got me pretty well up to speed with the power of Bash, and all the fun stuff that can be done without a GUI. It's one of the reasons that I'm so comfortable with the lack of GUI on much of DSL.
If there is some sort of patch that I could apply, without having to go through every friggin file from the RC4 release, that would be great.
