    Damn Small Linux on usb


    I have dsl installed on my usb flash drive and it works on computers that have the "boot from usb" option in the bios, but in some cases the computer does not have that option. So i would like to make a boot floppy that told that system to boot from the usb flash drive. Is there a way?

    Go to the DSL site and "browse the myDSL repository" where the "bootusb-0.8.img" is located then use "Rawrite" to put it on a floppy.
    You can then boot your usb flash drive with the floppy. BOOTUSB-0.8.img

    The boot image works with the latest release also.
