mga bossing, nag try ako mag download ng DSL (damn small linux) at around 50MB para sana iboot sa CD, pero di gumana... any instructions po? baka may kulang sa naDL ko eh
I just don't know if you were able to successfully burn the iso you downloaded. If you're using nero essentials, choose the function "burn image to disk"; or else try Imgburn (freeware), download from here http://fileforum.bet...rn/1128426215/1
Here's how DSL supposed to look like
Just to be sure, try following these steps (lifted from http://linux.sys-con...ead/244333.htm)
"Getting Started: Obtain, Burn, Boot
Get the Latest DSL Image
xxx Simply follow these instructions:
1) Visit the URL www.damnsmalllinux.org/download.html
2) Click on one of the mirror sites under "where to download"
3) Look for a directory called "current" and click on that to see its contents
4) Look past most of what you see and download the file "dsl-<version>.iso"
xxx Save your download in a place where you can find it as you move to the next step.
Burn the ISO onto CD
The file you just downloaded has an "iso" extension after the ISO standard format used on CD-ROMs. xxx You'll need a writable CD-R disk and a CD burner for the next step. Use your favorite CD-burning software to create a disk from this image.xxx
When you burn your CD remember that you're dealing with a bootable ISO image. Rather than just burning a copy of this file onto a CD (which won't boot properly in the next step), you'll want to instruct your CD burner to recognize the ISO and burn a disk image.
Boot from CD (or Use a Helper Floppy)
xxx This little operating system will detect much of the hardware attached to your computer including your network, but it will completely ignore your hard drive and data until you tell DSL to do differently. xxx If your PC recognizes the CD as bootable and begins a boot sequence, skip to the next section.
Most PCs can boot from a CD (the CD booting standard has been out for over 10 years), but they may not be configured to do so. To find out you'll have to get into the BIOS settings at boot time and check. As your machine starts up, look for a message that says something like "Press F-10 for BIOS Settings" and use whatever key you are instructed to press.
Next, while in the text-based BIOS menu system, look for a section on boot devices and boot order. Make sure that the CD-ROM is somewhere in the order of boot devices ahead of the hard drive (usually it goes in the order of floppy, CD, then hard drive). Find a way to put the CD-ROM in the boot sequence, save your changes then try a reboot. xxx
(If) It can't boot from a CD so (use) a helper floppy that can recognize and boot the CD. If you need such a thing, you can create one by following these steps:
1) Download the boot floppy boot image file for DSL
From Site: ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/damnsmall/current
Save As: boot.img
2) Create a boot floppy using a blank 1.44MB floppy disk
If running Windows
Download: rawrite.exe (or other suitable variant for your OS)
From Site: www.fdos.org/ripcord/rawrite/
Run Command: rawrite -f boot.img -d A
If already running a version of Linux:
Run Command: dd if=boot.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440k]
Once your computer is booting from the CD (or a combination of floppy/CD) you're ready to begin exploring the world of DSL, customizing it to your liking, and creating a configuration that you can easily return to on your next boot."
