Your post is largely irrelevant, and I haven't the heart to keep quiet.
DSL (Da** Small Linux) is a bootable distro (often called a live CD) based on Knoppix. It does not install to the hard drive. It mounts a compressed loopback file on the cd and a ramdisk. Newer versions merge the two, keeping file system changes in the ramdisk. There does not even need to be a hard drive plugged into the system at all. Now if he has no RAM, that's another problem. The odds of that are very slim here though. Reading between the lines, I'd say he had X up and running without problem.
Reason number 2: his post is from July 2004. He certainly does not have the same hd contents he did then (unless the computer has been shelved). This means that any post you submit is not for him, but for anybody else browsing the forum with the same problem.
my two cents
