nice changes
rofl i was just working on a calculator.lua, now i can see how others do it :P
oh, is the wallpaper the one i made? ;)

EDIT:
i just downloaded the iso and i see its indeed mine :) i apreciate that u added it very much :D

for the bugs:
wallpaper.lua doesnt seem to start the gui interface, it gives some (normal) errors, but that doesnt matter i think. i'll check the code tomorrow.

EDIT2:
oops, wallpaper.lua just works fine :) it just took  while to start cos i was running dsl in qemu...
the new mydsl is really great! works without bugs for me. its really different from the old one, i like it :)

* Dropped SCSI modules for needed space - available in the modules section.

I noticed (ref post about frugal-hd-lilo boot) that the scsi module (aic7xxx?) is the very first thing to load on my old desktop in order to be able to read the dsl image.

Without having tried (as it's so painful on this old machine) and without checking the scsi modules in the modules section (I can't find them?), will things work if I put aic7xxx in ../modules - I though this would need to compiled-in to boot?

scsi.tgz and md5.txt are now posted in current/extra_modules/ section of the download area.

You should be able to mydsl/modules/
