Damn Small Linux Wireless Card Installation
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 5, 2008
I was recently given an Inspiron 3500 along with a DWL-650+ wireless card. I originally installed puppy on the computer and the wireless card worked right away for that by just plugging it in. I decided to try DSL as well but the wireless card is not working as simply. What do I need to do to install the wireless card on DSL? Since it was given to me I don't have the cd for the card (if there was one) but I'm sure I could find a driver online if need be. I'm sure there's a simple way to install it on DSL, I just don't know how. Thanks!

Installing Damn Small Linux on a Toshiba...

Installing Damn Small Linux on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 405CS
i had to do that because i can only get short title. ok, to the point. i am an active ubuntu user; i have it as my host os. but i have 3 very, very old computers, and they all are toshiba satellite pro 405CS's. they all have the same stuff. win95, 40MB of ram, etc,. the only differences are the hard drives, and their space. these computers have the option of external drives. so i have 1 CD-R drive (which has to be internal), and 4 3.5 inch floppy drives, two of which can be external. my problem is getting the system to boot from either the floppy disc or the disc drive. there is no option in the BIOS menus about cd booting, just hard drive and floppy booting. so i figured that i would take the DSL floppy boot image, extract it to a cd, and put the contents of the cd on a floppy to boot from. well, that failed as well. so does anyone know of a way that i might be able to get this to work?

Does anyone know the next smallest linux to use from Damn Small linux? Or, is it the best to use. I like Ubuntu and xubuntu but for some reason they just won't load on the computer even though the specs should handle it. Cheers
Damn Small Linux + Fluxbox?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 14, 2008
I put DSL on a computer with 64mb RAM & 700mhz processor or something, i was wondering what "fluxbox" is? I currently have Linux Mint on my main computer, and was wanting to get as close to that as I could with the old computer.
btw, DSL isn't bad, i don't mind it. just the function of the mouse is weird and firefox is s-l-o-w. but hey, what do you expect, right? 64mb of ram isn't all that great
Problem installing Damn Small Linux on old IBM
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 1, 2008
I got an old IBM Aptiva 2180 from my grandparents that's currently running Windows 3.1(not so well, I might add). After looking through low-resource distros, I decided DSL is a good choice for the 450 MHZ processor, 16 MB RAM, and ~600 MB hard drive.
I downloaded and burned the ISO to a CD-R and I can't for the life of me figure out how to install it. I'm not too keen on how to navigate Windows 3.1, as I'm used to a modern desktop GUI, and so I'm not sure if the CD is even showing up. I went to the BIOS and there seem to be no boot options. When booting up with the CD in, nothing changes and it acts completely normal.
So what's the problem? Is it some sort of old-computer "feature" that I would feel stupid for not realizing?
Is Damn Small Linux Dead?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2008
I've been trying to use DSL for a few weeks now with some success, but there are just somethings that I don't understand and need help with. I've registered for their forum, and emailed the forum admin to prove I'm not a bot of some kind, and almost a month later I still have no rights to post on their forum to elicit some help.
Does this mean that DSL is dead or dying or something? I mean not allowing people to post on your forum when they register is a bit extreme, but not even "reviewing" new people after a month will defiantly stifle your community.
Are there any other forums out there with some large DSL support, or is their forum the be-all and end-all?
