It is unlikely that you will be able to get dsl to work on your laptop.
It sounds like knoppix was unable to boot properly on a 5150 until a very recent version of knoppix 3.3 was issued (Feb 2004). Since DSL is based on an older version of knoppix 3.3, it is unlikely to work on your computer.
You could try:
dsl nosmp apic=on
and cross your fingers.
If the newer knoppix is the same kernel version as the older one (2.4.22-xfs), then another option would be to download the newer knoppix 3.3 and create a boot floppy.
Then use this boot floppy in order to boot up dsl. All of the dsl cheatcodes should still work, but you will need to use the prefix "knoppix" instead or "dsl".
dsl enhance mydsl=hda1
should be replaced with:
knoppix nosmp enhance mydsl=hda1
