The DID's work well on a DL, I know Regina's (supposedly stronger than DID's) don't for example.
You can rivet the chains (needs a special tool) as well as using a clip link, and there are some now with screw in pins that are supposed to be as good as rivets.
For a riveted chain, I'd pay someone who does it every day to do the job, around here at least they don't charge much.
I'd stick with the DID's, the OEM chain did 46,000km on my bike, the Regina lasted 8, spat out bits of x-ring it's entire life, then developed amazing side play without actually stretching lengthwise much. My latest DID has around 26,000km on it and is still good.
