I have a copy of Damn Small Linux and i am trying to install our companies VPN client on the OS and running into issues. If not any kind willl do as long as i can VPN into work. Also with the DSL is thier a way to lock down the OS, so if i was to give my USB drive to someone to use they can only see what i allow them to see.

Thank you
Wayne

What is the VPN client? name? version? anything specific?
What are the issues?
What kind of VPN? OpenVPN or IPSEC based? other?

wrt. Lockdown what do you expect from the USB drive, I expect that you mean with the DSL not booted?, what file system FAT or other? What kind of usage do you expect from your USB drive.
You need to elaborate on what you are actually asking , shorthand style questions tend to be very hard to answer as there is too much info missing.

Sorry for the shorthand but I m not that technical I want to use Damn Small linux as my OS and keep it on my thumb drive and when i leave work i just want to use my thumb drive and I  need to load the Nortel VPN client but I am having some issues it thier a way to do this? Also is thier a way to lock it down so If i was to let someone borrow the usb stick then they could use a guest login and not see my info.

DSL version 4.03
Nortel VPN version V04_65.320

Does Nortel still live? I at least still have no clue what the issues might be, is it that it shows red spots showing on it's skin? sorry ...
w.r.t. DSL it's old, had no maintenance for more than 3 years...  Crypto FS + Linux 2.4 might be quite a stretch.

If you want to use an USB stick then you have the risk of loosing EVERY thing, if the person you borrowed the stick from decides to (re)format the stick...
Then again if you want to carry something with you that is safe it must be encrypted, you can setup

The Nortel leaflets speak about OpenVPN and IPSEC. Both are available on modern linux kernels.
May i suggest looking at:  http://www.slitaz.org/en/#news
