I am not sure. Maybe it was something weird here, rather than a bug in one
of your files.
In the interim, I had done a "frugal" install of Damn Small Linux ver 1.5.
That does something like this: copies the live CD to a linux partition on
a hard drive, but also makes a boot directory there with directories and
files related to booting.
The first time I did it, the install script(?) offered a choice of LILO or
GRUB - I picked LILO. After rebooting, it started Damn Small Linux fine,
but I couldn't see how to start MS-Windows.
So then I found a DOS/Windows boot floppy, and did fdisk /mbr.
Then I could boot Windows as usual.
And then re-did the frugal" install of Damn Small Linux , this time
It still messed with the MBR on the first hard drive, but the menu it shows
lets me choose DSL or Windows/DOS.
Anyhow, I wondered whether my system is to blame for the
loadlin usb2.gz root=/dev/loop0 initrd=initrd.gz rw
Or did I mess up, and should I re-download the kernel and the initrd?
