Augen E-Go not accepting DSL


Hi guys. I have an Augen E-Go netbook. Its specs are: 248 mhz, 64 mb of RAM, and 2 GB of internal storage (i know , it sucks, but hey, it was $17, what can i say?). Anyway, I am trying to install Darned Small Linux (not exactly the name, but you know what I mean). It currently has Windows CE on it, and it doesn't accept the driver I need to use to use the external disc drive I have. I need THAT to run the boot cd. Have any ideas on what I should do?

The Augen E-Go will never run DSL, since DSL is only available for x86 CPUs, but that machine uses an ARM926 CPU (ARM V5TE). You may be able to run a stripped down version of Debian's ARM version on it, but to be honest: There was a reason you got that machine so cheap.
