Just in case anybody wants to boot dsln using floppies "fromusb", here's how:
Code Sample
[format 1st floppy 1,722KB]
$ fdformat /dev/fd0u1722
Double-sided, 82 tracks, 21 sec/track. Total capacity 1722 kB.
Formatting ... done
Verifying ... done
[copy first image]
$ dd if=/path-to-file/bootfloppy1.img of=/dev/fd0
[format 2nd floppy 1,440KB]
$ fdformat /dev/fd0
Double-sided, 80 tracks, 18 sec/track. Total capacity 1440 kB.
Formatting ... done
Verifying ... done
[copy 2ndimage]
$ dd if=/path-to-file/bootfloppy2.img of=/dev/fd0

dsln doesn't have the"fromusb" boot code, so use something like:
dsl toram noacpi norestore fromhd=/dev/sdc1 mydsl=/dev/sdc1
- this is on a machine with two scsi hd, hence the usb stick is sdc1

Once the first floppy gives a message about the mouse and stops, put the second floppy in and hit return.
