    Smile Can't boot DSL

    I am trying to install DSL on a thumb drive. When i went into the F2 and F3 options i didn't know which one to choose, and also the ones i did choose all i got was a penguin at the top left corner and nothing else happened. Any clues? I downloaded v3.4.3 and v4.

    Smile dsl again

    A quick question. I am installing dsl onto a thumb drive, and when i get to the line that asks for the device name it prompts ''sda''. That is apparently not the right one. Where do I find the right one , or, what do i enter there? anyone know?

    Boot up from DSL CD, open Terminal/Konsole and execute fdisk -l command. Post output here. USB must be plugged in while executing fdisk command.
    Does your machine's BIOS supports booting from USB Drive?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
