Hi!

I would like to try installing BT on my existing partition.

I explain :
- I have an ubuntu distro installed and no more room for partitionning.
- I tried BT in a virtualbox but my network wireless card is not recognized.
- If I boot on a burned iso everything is fine but I can't install BT as I have no more free partitions to use.

So I have two choices :
- Adding parameters in my existing grub configuration to boot directly the iso, I've seen some informations about that but nothing very explicit and I'm lacking informations :
* What should be put after kernel parameters ? (from=bt2final.iso ?, etc)
* Where should I put the Iso ? at the root of a partition (ie /home as I have hdd device mounted as /home) ?
- I've tried to mount the livecd in my linux and copy everything in a subdir (/home/iso/bt2final) and I've added this configuration to boot on it :

title Backtrack
root (hd0,6)
kernel /iso/bt2final/boot/vmlinuz vga=0x317 max_loop=255 initrd=/iso/bt2final/boot/initrd.gz init=linuxrc lang=fr load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 ramdisk_size=100000 root=/dev/ram0 rw
initrd /iso/bt2final/boot/initrd.gz


the root parameter is correctly pointing on my /home partition (btw I'm using XFS) :
# fdisk -l /dev/sda

drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 2007-02-24 18:44 BT

And I can boot on it when I select it from the grub menu.
But in fact I boot the syslinux part but not the live cd, as I get this message :

"Fatal error occured. Livedata not found
Searching for BT directory"

And it stops here

So if someone can help me finding a way to boot like that, using directly the iso or the subdirectory, it would be cool !

Thanks.
