    RE: Problems booting up a presistant USB install
    as I understood Unetbootin is optional. you could use a bootable DVD, which is what I did, to format the 4 gig flash drive and make the 2 partitions through the use of fdisk command. Before I burned the ISO to the DVD I did try to use Unetbootin on a 2 gig flash so that I wouldn't have to use a disk at all but It didn't want to boot up ether so maybe it is broken.

    Problems booting up a presistant USB install
    I have recently attempted to install Backtrack 4 on my 4 gig flash drive. It is in many ways similar to ubuntu and runs KDE. On the flash I created two partitions. one is fat32 and the other ext3 following this tutorial on how to do it. http://www.infosecramblings.com/backtrack/backtrack-4-usbpersistent-changesnessus/ I made the fat32 with a bootable flag, copied the entire dvd over to the partition and ran the grub-install on the same partition. when I tried booting it, all the screen said was grub at the top left corner and appeared frozen. I think tried to reinstall grub with the same command and it was saying "unknown Partition table signature" about 8 times but the said it was successful with out any errors. This is obviously wrong cuz it doesnt boot. the menu.lst appears to be fine all though I was required to modify it a little if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate I'm a bit stuck

    Burning or converting ccd, img, sub to CD?
    Ok so I'm the kind of person to do his reasurch before asking questions but now I'm just stuck. I can't really find a way to burn a CDimage that's made from cloneCD so if anyone has an idea I'd apreciate it. Just as info I'm running xubuntu/ubuntu desktops and I've already tried using ccd2iso and K3D to make an iso. I've also tried finding a .deb package for ISOmount but no luck. Help apreciated thx
