Display problem with DSL


Need help from the guys here for my DSL installation.

I am trying to install DSL to my old Thinkpad 760XL. This laptop does not allow boot from CD.
I used to poorman installation, copying the Knoppix and the boot directory to the harddisk, used a DSL boot disk to booted up the laptop and running dsl-hd-install and I managed to complete the installation.

However, when I try to boot to the hdd dsl, the display could not be shown. I tried typing fb800x400, vga=normal, vga=788 at the boot prompt, but it display "Image not found, [Tab] to see list", or similar message. Sorry, forgot the exact message.

Does anyone encountered similar problem and manage to solve it?

Press tab. it will show you a list of installed images. Assume it says "linux", then try "linux vga=normal". If it says "dsl", do "dsl vga=normal". You just need to specify a kernel name first.
