I went to the DSL Forum on LQ and found DSL ver.3.4. I tried to download it and got the infamous message, "This Page Can Not Be Displayed." How should Metalink programs be used?

I don-a-no since I'm still reading the book. But, I did download VMplayer installed the player(within[?] Win XP) and then downloaded the DSLappliance (get both at vmware.com). Everything went well I am currently running DSL 3.3 there in VM. Just found out that I have to give some boot options in order to run the network and create root login/pswd so as to start other deamons. DSL is a little slow in responding in a VM so one has to be patient in particular with the mouse buttons.
The book is good, has a CD, but you can go to a book store and read it there for the info..........the book will help.

........Well, you got me on another "Ah don no". The live CD comes with the book's CD but I seem to remember something that indicated all standard DSL come as live CD's so it is likely that a downloaded DSL is also a live CD. You are best to do a little look around and see, to be 100% sure.
I'd like to help a little more but just had radical surgery (for me) and am under bad weather right now for a couple of weeks.
........Come back and let us know what you've found out, for sure ?

Metalink seems to be a download program or a standard add-on. Do an answers.com or google which will lead you to The Wiki for good metalink info.
