DSL is the same as other Linux distros in that it uses the Linux kernel, GNU utilities (or busybox equivalent), and standard *nix file structure.
It is quite different from many other distros in that it is typically run from a compressed filesystem, and makes use of mountable applications.
There are other similarities/differences, but these are the ones I find most important.
