    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?
