how do you install DSL? I downloaded the dsl-2.1.iso that is shown on the first page and extracted all the files under "boot" and "KNOPPIX" on a disk, reboot comp and put CD as bootable, doesn't work......
does it matter what kind of cd writing program you use?

Not really, but it does matter _how_ you burn it.  You extracted the contents of the ISO and made a "bootable" dos might as well set a drink on that disk.

The ISO is already's an image of a bootable CD.  If your burning softare has the ability to burn from disk image, use that feature to burn the ISO instead of burning the contents of the ISO or the ISO iteself to a data session.

dsl-2.1-vmx works fine in VMware 5.5 but dsl-2.1b-vmx got the error message below:-

The virtual machine is using a hardware version that is not supported by this version of VMware Workstation. Please use a previous version of VMware Workstation to upgrade the virtual machine.
For details, refer to our Web site at "".

Please kindly re-check and update. Thanks  :D

one thing i was wondering if it could be incorperated into the next RC and versions of DSL is with the would it be possible to allow installs to non-hdax(ex. hdb, hdc) so it could be done in runlevel 2 instead of firering up the GUI and doing it that way


OK, you've now crossed over into the realm of super nerds, whereby even regular nerds steal your lunch money and throw rocks at you.
