    Exclamation USB install help

    i did look through the forums but didnt understand most of the stuff. Im sure this must have been posted before but couldnt find it in my search.
    i downloaded bt3final for usb and formatted my stick with fat32, copied the folders and ran bootinst.dat .
    i booted and i tried selecting the different options such as KDE, Flux etc.. and all end up giving me the same error.
    At locating directory, it says wait a while and then comes up with error and says this should not happen.

    I want to know if there is anything more to the install process, because i read something about configuring etc, i want to use bt3 for running aircrack, spoonwep etc, and plz tell me if any further modifications are required to the install.

    The md5 of the iso file is correct so nothing wrong with data, ie corrupt data etc.

    I have a sandisk mini cruzer 1.0gb stick, if u need any more data i will gladly provide it.

    so do i need to create different partitions for a live install on usb to work?... i thought all we needed to do was just copy paste, run bootinst.dat and then it would start working..
    can anyone confirm that we have to create different partitions. also i have it on a 1gb usb stick, so that doesnt leave much space for other partitions is that fine, or should i get a different drive.

    Only one fat32 partition is required to run a live version of bt without changes.
    You describe the method to install bt right in your post here, so what exactly is the problem your having? Did you not even try before asking about it?

    as i mentioned in my first post, it says locating data directory and then says couldnt find it. anyway i just realized that i have ubuntu installed on my hd from before so could that be a problem. i will check with that and then post again.

    k, anyway just removed ubuntu and still same problem, it says looking for data directory, and says wait a while, and then BT3 data not found, this should not happen etc, and then restarts.
    i cant find the problem because it gets through the part of the booting process but stops there, if it didnt boot at all, i could atleast consider it a problem with the iso file or some corrupt data.
