Renamed the /persistence folder back to test again, reliable failure. I scribbled a bunch of the screen output and will attempt to reproduce it here. This occurs not long after the USB message, and the finding of the signature file.

and 3 more lines that I didn't copy. I'll post this and then come back on the other machine to get the menu.lst item for Salix. If there's some way to capture the entire text, tell me how and I'll do it again.

Anything else ... puter is an AMD64-3000 with 1gb of memory and a nvidia vid card. The partition where I put /salix is a /dev/sdb11, vfat, on a 1-tb sata disk. Boots using grub4dos' grldr invoked via a boot.ini (winXP) entry. This drive holds XP and 4 linux distros on 13 partitions, and I will not screw with the MBR of it.
I imagine the info I need to know is somewhere within the grub2 files on the iso, but I have not yet felt the requirement to learn that mess. I'm hoping you can tell me of a changes= cheatcode or similar that will activate the restore, and/or allow me to boot without changes if want.
I appreciate your indulgence on my issue, understand it's not the intended usage. I have had good success booting other slack-like livecds in this poor man's manner, though none using your system.
