Unhappy Recommends for cf install?

Frustrated Noob...

Mission, replace the OS on a Hitachi Visonplate ('02 Midori) with something I can actually use. (Side mission, extract the touch screen driver and use in new OS...if possible.)

Using a separate computer for file transfer. I'm trying to do a hard drive install of DSL 4.4.10 from CD onto a 4 gig 133x cf card via an IDE adapter.)

Installation completes, but when I reboot I either get a hang or a grub error. (Error 17.) no success in lilo,grub or hd install.

I've also used win image to load from the iso and boot image onto the cf card.

What am I doing wrong?

1. Would I have more success buying a usb adapter and doing a pen drive install?

2. Is there another distro I should try for this purpose?

I found Puppy Linux yesterday evening. Puppy has a wizard for installing to a cf card in an IDE slot. I got that part done within 2 minutes of starting for the first time.

Any Ideas on how to find a touch screen driver on an installed version?
Once found, how would I move just the driver into the new OS?
