What files should I download from the ftp mirror?
I'm a bit confused here...I've never used a USB based distro. I'm trying to install DSL on a 64MB USB pen drive. But the problem is, I do not know what files to download from their ftp mirror!

I will be running it on a laptop which does NOT have a FLOPPY drive and also the CDROM drive is NOT working - which is partly the reason I'm trying to run a USB based distro! I found some tutorials after a bit of googling - but they seem to require a working CDROM drive for installing DSL on a USB - but then whats the point - if my CDROM drive is working, I would very well boot Knoppix off it instead of DSL :)

Which of the files from their ftp mirror should I be downloading?

Note: This machine I'm using currently is running Mandrake and not Windows!

Not completely sure. You should be able to download "" and unzip it to your flash drive, but I believe that would act more like a "live cd" than an install.
