    Default Problems making a LiveUSB image

    Right, so following the messing with backtrack PDF as I've done when I've done this previously I was going to make another edited BT3 image in VMware, however it seems like I'm doing something wrong, I'll paste the results belove.

    fdisk /dev/sdb
    n [enter]
    p [enter]
    [enter] (default 1)
    [enter] (cylinder size, default 552)
    w
    *It syncs the discs*
    mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 (No errors)
    mkdir /mnt/sdb1
    mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
    tar zxvf linux-live-6.1.5.tar.gz
    *untars*
    cd linux-live-6.1.5/
    bt linux-live-6.1.5 # vi .config
    changing name of the distro to LCSBT3
    removing lib64, srv adding pentest
    changing CDDATA.... To CDDATA='/mnt/sdb1/live_data_$$'
    mount /dev/sdb1 /boot
    ./build
    Then it gives out this error

    Changing current directory to /root/linux-live-6.1.5
    Name of your live distro [hit enter for LCSBT3]:
    Linux Live scripts were installed successfuly in /
    Enter path for the kernel you'd like to use [hit enter for /boot/vmlinuz]:
    cannot find /boot/vmlinuz
    bt linux-live-6.1.5 #
    I have no idea why this happens, I MAY have done a BT3 image on this VMware image before if that matters, the size of the VM is 5.7GB, I've made a 4GB pre-allocated, splitted extra drive just as described. I've done this before without any errors or problems, what am I doing wrong/what's wrong?

    Default

    Right, I tested setting the kernel location to /boot/ and it said it used the kernel from that area, however, the USB version that was made had no kernel at all, can I use the kernel from BT3? If so, where in BT3 lies the kernel?
