If you have a CD image on hda1, then you are running a Frugal with persistent home, what I call a hybrid system.
If you hda1 has linux24, minirt24.gz, and KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX then you should be able to copy over these three system files. Exactly how you do that depends on what access your Libettro has. If you can boot from a CD then no a big issue. If your Libettro needs to boot first before it can use a CD then updating those system files while running from them means you would need to boot toram
Once the three system files are copied then you need to copy over and adjust the files list under "Files likely in your backup". Typically this is done by copying the new files from /etc/skel/ after you have booted from the new system files.
First thing I would do is to copy your exiting backup.tar.gz and call it something else. Don't overwrite until things are working well.
After copying over the new system files, I would not boot into X. Many changes to x startup files.
I would boot
dsl 2 base
then copy over the files from /etc/skel
If you added lines to .filetool.lst or xfiletool.lst then you should add those lines to the new /opt/.filetool.lst and /opt/.xfiletool.lst
Then reboot with a normal backup.
