|Thanks Robert, but those cheat codes didn't help. I tried all combinations of those. I tried the live CD on a friends computer and it works fine. So I have to give up on using the bleeding edge of DSL tech for now and continue using 3.4 version. But I must congratulate you for another great release. Thank you very much.|
I am surprised that it did not help. I know that I had to use such on my Sony Vaio pcmcia extenal cdrom drive.
Anyway, you can still use v4.0 with a little more effort. Since 3.4 works with your external cdrom, then perform a frugal install of 3.4. Upon first boot, boot with:
boot: dsl 2 legacy base norestore
Place DSL v4 in the cdrom drive, and mount it.
Then copy over linux24, minirt24,gz and KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX files from the DSL v4 cdrom to where you had installed 3.4. Upon completion you should be able to boot into v4.0. Since you had not run 3.4 as user dsl and no backup occured. The configuration for 4.0 should be automatic upon its first boot.
