OK-you have a USB port you can boot from?
If you have a USB port that will boot your OK.
Now, download my new MultiDistro "LinuxLive-Beta-USB" here-
It has alot of stuff and I made it after you mentioned you couldn't get DSL to work on your 'puter.
It will probably still freeze though-but DSL-N won't freeze-that's odd isn't it?
They are almost the same-so I don't know why DSL freezes and DSL-N doesn't?
So-try to install Feather/DSL-N or one of the others on the LinuxLive-Beta-USB I made.
There is a reason DSL freezes and no one seems to know why...?
I have seen this complaint here often with DSL and Toshiba laptops.
I love DSL too and wish I could install it to my Toshiba 7000CT.
If you do get DSL-N to install right, after reboot it wouldn't load "X" right, so you will probably have to edit a config file.
Also see my post about multidistro if your interested-start at "reply #61"
The "LinuxToolz-Beta" download is at "reply #80" and LinuxLive-Beta-USB is at "reply #91"
Report back whether or not you installed DSL/DSL-N, etc.
Note also that if DSL/DSL-N/Feather can't find the KNOPPIX image, try just using the DSL/DSL-N/Feather distro by itself-not my Multidistro but DSL-N on USB alone...
