    Is Bash Burner the name of the burning software you have, or do you mean you want to burn it from a BASH Unix shell?

    There is a version of Nero specifically for Linux: NeroPortal [NeroLINUX] ---Like I said in an earlier thread though, DSL is really not much of a Linux distro, it's more of a tool than a full OS to be honest. I doubt you'll be able to get Nero working on it.

    DSL uses the Fluxbox window manager. You can install Fluxbox in Debian if you like. It's not as fully featured as KDE or GNOME but it's a lot faster

    KDE has plenty of nice widgets and things if you're into that:

    ... but you have your choice of many different desktops in Linux, and KDE is only one of them. :) Debian will give you the option to run any you like, and switch between them whenever you like.

    [ot]
    Is it possible to burn cds while working off a live CD.
    Or do you need two drives?

    You can load DSL to RAM so it no longer needs the CD once it's booted.

    ok i have about 8 hours so i can type alot now

    ok i have 2 drives (and a 3rd usb dvd) one drive is very slow but works fine for live cding DSL but cant boot xubuntu with it(or any other ubuntu flavor)i dont know about any other linuxs becuase i dont have those cds but i can boot to DSL with the slow one then burn a iso with the fast one

    and for loading ot ram i dont know if thats what i need to do but in xubuntu i can boot from the faster cd drives sand burn to the dvd but... i dont have that much ram and it runs out of memory before its done downloading i think i got about 30 out of ~160 i can could uninstall some of the packages while im in the xubuntu live but htat would take for ever and might not even work

    so to my thinking is that running DSL from my slow cd drive then burning with my fast would be the best route but i could boot with fast drive and burn with the external dvd but that could just make things more complex

    so back to the basic question at the start of this topic

    How do you get the DSL cd burner app to work (i hate command line but im learning)


    o and ps i wish command lines had help files
