First off all, I'd like to thank the developer(s) of SMS for an awesome distrobution!

I've downloaded the latest version of SMS Live (1.4.Cool and the KDE144 package, and I opened up the ISO with Magic Iso Maker and added the LZM file under sms/modules and I burned the ISO to a CD, but then when I boot the CD the desktop doesn't load, so my question is. How do I make it load? Is there anyway to make the ISO autoload the desktop? Or what is the bash command? I don't intend to install it on the harddrive (mainly because my server doesn't have any) therefor I'd like the desktop to autoload.

Hi, login to SMS and for starting the X windows server type "xconf" to auto configure your VGA and afterwards type "startx" to start the desktop GUI.

If you are going to use your iso on a single machine, after booting into it, you can create a module with your xorg.conf and edit rc.local to autologin and starting desktop.
creating folders for module and copy your xconf with
mkdir -p /root/mod/etc/X11
mkdir -p /root/mod/etc/rc.d
cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf mod/etc/X11/

edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local and add a line
su - root -c "startx"
and copy rc.local to your module with
cp /etc/rc.d/rc.local /root/mod/etc/rc.d/

create the module with
dir2lzm /root/mod z_module.lzm
place it in folder modules and rebuild.
Keep the name of the module z_module.lzm to load last.

That is all greek to me, I'm not that experienced with Linux. Would there be any chance that you could make an ISO with the desktop autoloading? I'd be forever grateful and as a sign of appretiation I'd setup a mirror once my server is running again.

Thanks in advance.

I can create the module for you but I need your xorg.conf, or else your desktop will most likely have 1024x768 resolution.
