    Need more details...

    Since I don't know anything about what you're trying to do I can't help. Are you just testing it out or are you trying to save data? Grab a knoppix live cd, its better

    I've never actually tried DSL, but maybe it's waiting for your input?

    umm... I doubt that... I've used dsl before.... from a different disk... but that was my friends disk... I ordered a few disks from the dsl website and they won't work.... maybe I should have just downloaded it? 49mb
    I've tried burning iso images for knoppix but they never boot up..... dunno why...
