Hi!

So, I have preconfigure SMS on HDD and create liveUSB from this. But the computer which from need to run SMS don't support booting from usb, there need a bootfloppy disk! Bootdisk must be like bootfloppy of Damn Small Linux (Puppy Linux, Slitaz etc.) containing small kernel to turn on supporting usb to be run it. Is it exist anywhere? Or may it be created?

Thank you!

Slax boot iso i believe support usb booting.
I haven't try SMS.Live.CD though.
You can remove all data under sms/base dir and rebuild the iso, It's about 8MB size.
Try to boot with it.

Yes, I know about it. But CD-ROM is broken and read CDs very very bad, there need a FLOPPY 1.44Mb image to boot like this ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/damnsmall/current/bootfloppy.img.

Thank you!

DSL uses a 2.4 kernel, the problem with 2.6 kernels is that don't fit on a floppy.
Have you tried to boot from CD-ROM, it's only 8MB so it might boot.
