Dyne:bolic 2.3 Docking help (hardware issue?)

just got Dyne:bolic 2.3

running on:
Thinkpad 380XD "The Tank"
4.6GB HD (3.3GB Free)
192 MB swap
Very minimal Slack 11 installed

Dyne runs fast enough (not great)
tried docking from Dyne got i/o error
removed the parts of dyne that got copied

tried from inside slack:
cp -Rv shows i/o error with dyne.sys
eveything else copies fine

dyne.sys is about 65MB

just don't know what to try next

dyne:bolic is a LiveCD GNU/Linux distribution with a focus on multimedia production, and is distributed with a large assortment of applications for audio & video manipulation. Unlike many Linux distributions, dyne:bolic is based entirely on free software, and is a true GNU distribution.

sorry, 'docking' in dyne:bolic is copying over the dyne folder from the cd in order to allow the OS to run from the hd instead of the cd thus improving performance

I know that my thinkpad and dyne:bolic aren't a match made in heaven, but there is no reason I can see why I shouldn't be able to dock and run the system on my thinkpad

that is all

hello, I am new to linux so it could be me, but I am having similar problems with a "run off the CD" linux very similar to (possibly based on) dyne:bolic called pure:dyne. I can run it off the CD fine but when I try to either use a "nest" (a small file on a hd/removable media that remembers your settings) or "dock it" (run the CD first and then it detects the files on my usb stick and asks if I wanna boot from there instead which'll improve performance). I don't know if the two systems are comparable but it doesn't work on my shuttle desktop pc or my dell lappy (same error), though it boots fine if I leave docking or nesting out of it. Sorry I can't help solve it though! Will post again if I find a solution which works for me.
