Not that this is of any help, but I have the same problem with the ver 4 series of DSL.  I am using an older Gateway laptop.  The newest of the ver 3 DSL's load fine (frugal install, grub boot), and after replacing with the newer files, I get the same error message (kernel panic......)

I copied the 3.4.11 linux24, minirt24.gz and /KNOPPIX folder from the embedded download onto the root of /dev/hda2 and it booted the same as 4.2.5... with the same "Can't find /KNOPPIX filesystem" error.

Similarly, inserting the *4.2.5* cd after boot had started, but before "Looking for USB..." made DSL load something briefly off the CD, and then complete the 3.4.11 boot from harddrive.

minirt is binary. How does one edit that?

It's a gzipped ext2 file, so you edit it by gunzipping and mounting it..

/dev/hda2 is reiserfs partition with a broken SUSE install on it.

Reiserfs is not a supported boot partition in minirt for both 3.x and 4.x. It is supported afterwards, i.e, linuxrc and modules/ both within minirt would need to be modified as previously suggested.
