DSL read only problem
Just started with Damn Small Linux and still trying to find my way around. I've been experimenting with run levels, moving from the default 5 to 3 and to 2. Now I have the situation that, whatever level I choose, /cdrom/ is seen as a read only device, although it is mounted over hda1. This shows both at boot time (error messages appear as the system boots) and at shutdown where I can no longer backup as the error /cdrom//backup.tar.gz: Cannot open : Read only file system is logged in the /tmp/backup_status file. (yes the error does have two // in it?)
How do I return it all to its previous friendly state, please?
by default, CDROM's are mounted read-only. You need to use a software that is able to burn datas on your cd for your datas to be backed-up.
otherwise, if you really want to mount the CDROM in r/w mode, consider editing the option field in the /etc/fstab file.

hope it helped.
