System halts on startup when uncompressing image


Hi!

I am trying to start Damn Small Linux from a USB stick on a HP t5000 thin client. When starting in Default mode the system just stops. When starting i failsafe mode, the text rolls on the console until the message "RAMDISK: Compressed image found on block 0" and then hangs..

What does that mean? What could be wrong? Can I run the image without using a ramdisk?

Thanks in advance!
/Carl

Does the usb work correctly on other systems?
