    You've downloaded the wrong version, just for the record. You need the DLDI version, not the NDS version. The NDS version is made to run entirely on its own without filesystem access, so it's extremely limited in what it can do.

    This information and step-by-step guides on how to install DSLinux on your card can be found on the DSLinux wiki. There's no need for someone to write up instructions for this topic when the documentation is already there, freely available. Check out the "Running DSLinux" page for basic installation instructions, and then "Using DSLinux" for instructions on what you can do after that point.

    It's got two different forms of compression on it. Extract the files twice, and you should end up with a "dslinux.nds" file and a "linux" folder which should go on the root of your card.

    Detailed instructions.

    And please use punctuation. It makes people much more inclined to help you if you take the effort to make your question readable.
