EDIT BOOT FILES:
Next job is to edit the inittab file so that DSL will auto login to the default user desktop. The file is located at /etc/inittab
$ vim /etc/inittab
Change the line:
~~:S:respawn:/bin/bash -login >/dev/tty1 2>&1
and make it
1:12345:respawn:/bin/bash -login >/dev/tty1 2>&1
Press Insert and make the changes and then press Escape and type:
$ :wq This writes the changes to the file -w and quits the task -q
I will now edit the boot file /boot/grub/menu.lst so certain cheat codes can be made to activate automatically on boot.
$ vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
$ (press ins)
I am using the second entry to boot from so i changed the default boot from 0-->1
I changed the wait time to 3 seconds
I added to the second boot entry 'noacpi noscsi'
$ (press esc) :wq
Now it is time to install the DSL extensions.
