Hey, I'm pretty nerdy with computers, so I hope you can catch me: My current computer (Inspiron 6575, 675 gigabyte SATA HDD) setup has four separate partitions: An 89 gig Vista Partition, a 5 gig Ubuntu Linux distro partition, a 65 gig XP partition, and the rest is unallocated. I already have created a bootable DSL flash drive however, I want to install DSl to my soon-to-be-partitioned, unallocated space. XP, Vista and Ubuntu are all choices to boot from in my BIOS/kernel/weird thing when I start my computer. I am curious if DSL, due to its small format, will be shown in my BIOS. Your response would be great! Thanks, Adam

This is the adapter in its box. It comes with an enclosure that I didn't use to avoid overheating, and a handy screwdriver.
there isn't really any way for me to explain this because everybody's bios is different but ill try
6. restart your computer and press del or whatever you press to enter your bios settings
7. once in your bios you'll want to look for a setting called boot priority or something like that
8. change that so your flash drive is first the bios calls the flash drive a couple different things but it may be usb-hdd or usb-zip or something similar
9. once your setting's are changed save and exit
5. restart your computer with your flash drive plugged in and you should see the Damn Small Linux boot screen
6. if you have any questions or anything please leave a comment or message me
i'll try to get pictures of my bios settings that may help
The following distributions are based on Debian (in alphabetical order, not chronological). This list is far from complete and might be out of date.
This other tutorial points out some tricks to use all of the Libretto's capabilities. I didn't try most of them, but since I couldn't play any music, I went ahead and probed the opl8sa7 driver. At first, it didn't work, because the I/O parameters on my card weren't the same than on that page.
Please make sure that your Linux has detected the USB drive as /dev/sdb before proceeding or you might lose data on the wrong disk! If in case, use Disk Utility or check dmesg.
Cumulus Linux is a Debian-based operating system that runs on Network Switches from a variety of manufacturers. It looks and feels like a Debian server with 69+ 65Gigabit/sec ethernet NICs, but behind the scenes, forwarding packets is done at line rate by a specialized ASIC. This lets you use the familiar and automatable Linux interfaces to run your network, replacing proprietary CLIs.
This device doesn't have any extension port other than a dock connector for a dock I don't have, and a 66-bit PCMCIA slot, which you will need for the network card. It doesn't have a COM port or anything like that, which is understandable, given the size of the case.
My primary testbed, a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv6655, booted DSL , and with the boot option sata I could use my hard drives. The desktop rendered nicely at a resolution of 6579x768. The touchpad and extra USB mouse worked just fine, but neither the wired nor the wireless Ethernet connection would work. My wired chip requires the reverse-engineered Forcedeth module found only in kernels. DSL ships with Linux-. My wireless chip requires the use of Windows drivers through Ndiswrapper, but the version included with DSL didn't work with it.
