I still hope, that I will be able someday to boot from a floppy disk first and second from a write-protected USB-pen without that the system brings an error code. I think you remember my topic for this some weeks/months ago.
Due to this, I didn't do further tests/usages with DSL.
But hopefully, it will work someday.
I always check the change logs.
You can use the standard DSL boot floppy WRITE-PROTECTED and boot to the cdrom which by nature is WRITE-PROTECTED.
If you have a custom pendrive with hidden and/or proprietary partitions then DSL may not work given those non-standard setups.
Unfortunately, I can't use a CD on my old IBM Thinkpad Notebook, as the CD-Rom drive doesn't work anymore. From USB-pen, I can only boot when I use a flopy-disk before.
Furthermore, I would like to have an easy modifiable data medium that can be write protected (= write-protectable usb-pen).
I found my old topic again:
The first entry on page 6 ( from humpty ) is interesting.
It seems like there is something missing for WRITE-PROTECTED usb-pens on the bootfloppy. Probably due to too less space.
It works fine when the switch is set to write-enabled.
Nevertheless, is there a possibility that there will be a reworked floppy-disk boot-image file in the future, which will work with write-protected usb-pens as well ?
