Cool idea, trying it on my Toshiba T4700CS (DX2/50, 8MB RAM, 200MB HD), but I'm having some major problems installing.
I partitioned the drive to 150MB and 53MB (for some reason it registers as 203MB...), then copied the CD to the 53MB partition using 34 disks with slice.com (well, 34 for the KNOPPIX file, 2 for the rest)
Then I made a boot disk, and this is where it all comes to a halt:
boot: hit enter
"you passed an undefined mode number" etc -> continue
uncompressing linux..ok, booting the kernel
then stalls (LCD flashes "A" and "arrows", don't knwo what they mean) at either "detecting CD.." (or similar) or "accessing KNOPPIX CDROM at /dev/hda5... "
Any thoughts on what is going on, and how to get by? I'm guessing from other posts that the laptop should be kinda OK to run DSL?
