Launch DSL toram directly from Grub menu?


I have an old computer that has grub installed and the machine would like to start DSL toram directly from the grub, which is installed on hda1.

Would you know how to add this to the grub so that it launch DSL.

I have installed debian stable grub.

Thank you

Just need to edit the grub.cfg file and add the
option in the boot option line of your particular DSL menu entry.

EDIT: Reread the question and I assume you want to boot from HDD instead of RAM. Find /boot/grub/grub.cfg and REMOVE the --toram option. Use something like nano or vim to open grub.cfg and find the line similar to:
menuentry 'Damn Small Linux 4.* ' {
You should find the --toram parameter a few lines beneath.
