    Question Porblem when checking the Filesystems of my BT3 on usb

    Hi, at first, thanks to umattu for his tutorial "BT3 on USB with persistent changes, using Linux"
    Of course I m trying to install BT3 on my 2 GB Flash Drive, I successfully Create the Partitions and write them on my flash drive, then I write the Filesystems but when I tried to Check them I had a problem with the /dev/sda1 partition, when I put :
    Code:
    fsck -y /dev/sda1
    it output :
    Code:
    fsck 1.39 (29-may-2006)
    fsck:fsck.vfat:not found
    fsck:error 2 while excuting fsck.vfat for /dev/sda1
    the second partition /dev/sda2 is correctly checked !
    I m using BT3 from bootable CDROM as a OS, and I have a U3 smart SanDisk,
    So, is there any explications ?
    P.S: when I was writing the file system I dont use :
    Code:
    user@laptop:~$ mkfs -t vfat /dev/sda1
    because there was (-bash) ^^'
    so I just put
    Code:
    mkfs -t vfat /dev/sda1
    and it also output
    Code:
    mkfs.vfat 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
    thanks a lot for reading my post

    Did you remove the U3 smart sanDisk software using their removal software first? You could try using dosfsck instead on the first partition and see if that makes a difference. You might not even need to check the file system. Worse case you have to reformat and start again.

    so I put :
    Code:
    dosfsck -y /dev/sda1
    and it output :
    Code:
    dosfsck 2.11, 12 mars 2005, fat 32, LFN
    /dev/sda1: o files, 1/263616 Clusters
    for /dev/sda2 it output :
    Code:
    dosfsck 2.11, 12 mars 2005, fat 32, LFN
    Logical sector size is zero
    You might not even need to check the file system. Worse case you have to reformat and start again.
    I reformated again and again but I had the same problem when I try to check the Filsystems
    what can I do right now ? ^^'

    I try it with another USB disk (sony vaio 4go) but I still have the same the problem.
    and to change the permission of the files "syslinux" et "lilo" when I do it the files become "read only mode " so I cant save the file "syslinux.cfg" after that I make the changes
    can someone explain this to me plzz ?
