    EDIT: Alright I got it fully working. Managed to install BT4 on a 4GB USB stick. It's the minimum it needs.

    Hi guys,

    I've been trying to install BT4 on a 4GB USB stick and I haven't really been succesful.

    I did all the above steps while changing the /dev/sda to /dev/sdb (cause sdb is my USB stick) but it's still not working. When I put the USB in it says ... well, it just doesn't recognize it as bootable.

    Also, it looks like to /root partion needs at least 3.5 GB otherwise it can not copy all the contect there.

    I've set the boot parition to 100MB and the Swap to 250MB.

    Edit: Never mind, I got it working, but now after it passes the boot menu it gives the fallowing:
    Kernel panic VFS:unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (8,11)

    I will probably figure it out in the end. Thanx anyway.

    One hint for the lilo.conf:

    I would recommend to include the statement "compact" at any point into the file. This will drastically improve the load speed.

    I have not tried yet the bt4 beta, and i'm curious about installation that came out..

    Is the copying of kernel to boot directory are omited?

    *cp /boot/vmlinuz /mnt/bt/boot

    Because I've seen 2-3 guide of bt4-beta installation, and all them for did not include it!?

    Thank you for your help!

    Just wanted to drop a huge Thank You to PureHate and all rest who put all the work into the install guide. It simply rocks. Up and running in less than a half an hour. Smooth as can be... great job...

    Thanks
