http://delicious.com/operat0r/backtrack look for the post on changes
I've done a fair bit of searching and it doesn't seem other people are having this issue.
I followed the video tutorial on BLIP.TV and all worked well until I tried to boot from the USB using persistent changes (all the other modes work fine, so my assumption is in the syslinux.cfg file).
The error - Fatal Error Occured - can't setup union (aufs)
Something went wrong and we can't continue. This should never happen.
I have 2 partitions on my USB (one fat32, the other (changes - does it have to be CALLED changes?) is ext3), and I have set the right boot volume to changes = /dev/sdb2
The only concern was in nano when I saved out - it wanted to save in a DOS or MAC file format. Is that good? I saw no other solutions and nano -n 'fileofyourchoice.ext' didn't work.
I hope to get this working - along with providing, I hope with, enough information to get me started a bit.
If your running bt3, there must be a folder named "changes" in your ext partition.

Thanks you two -
Currently my ext3 partition is like this /media/sdb2/changes
Does that look right? I can boot into with persistent changes now (I changed in the syslinux.cfg the changes from /dev/sdb2 to /sdb2) but nothing is saved when I reboot and check.
I checked out the link, seems a bit ill-faded (hard to follow) at first glance but I'll look more into it. Looks like there should be an easier way.
Forget it - I got it fixed.
