Thanks Robert. I tried dsl fromhd=/dev/scd0 but it still does not work.
I am able to pop in my old DSL liveCD (DSL 3.4, the regular iso image, not the syslinux version) and type the following to boot from the CD:
dsl ide1=0x180,0x386 pci=off
I have always had to type the above cheat code to boot from a liveCD because I use a Sony Vaio PCG SR33 laptop which is quite old. But when I use the same cheatcode with DSL 4.0 liveCD the screen goes blank the caps lock light and another light next to it starts blinking simultaneously and nothing happens. And when I dont use any cheatcode with this new DSL liveCD then it does not find the CDROM drive when scanning all devices for the image and drops me to a (very limited) shell.
Is this because my laptop cannot handle the new Kernel?
