Can someone tell me how to install slitaz through frugal install..
 
Hi all, I'm trying to install slitaz on a laptop with a 64MB ram and a 10GB HDD. Currently running Windows ME. When I try to run slitaz 4.0 loram cdrom.iso it always searches for the rootfs on the cd rom which is currently broken. I just cant make it find the rootfs file on the pendrive. Therefore I decided to do a install given in this link: http://doc.slitaz.org/en:handbook:installation. In the link it's given exactly my problem : "If you get into trouble because the compressed file-system is not found, please check that SliTaz is in the master CD/DVD device. If the problem persists you can use a downloaded ISO image and mount it on /media/cdrom where the installer expects to find it:
# mount -o loop slitaz-3.0.iso /media/cdrom. My question is where exactly do I put this "# mount -o loop slitaz-3.0.iso /media/cdrom" ?. Thanks all help is appreciated.

I'd suggest you make a www.netboot.me usb and boot to slitaz that way. Then see if you can install it.

This loop issue would be more complex.
