    Question USB Persistant working, but need to fix menu.lst... HOW???

    First off, I am not new to computing! I am new to Linux command line, but an old hand at DOS... I followed the great video tutorial here: Backtrack 4 USB Install - Offensive Securityto get my USB Persistant drive installed and working.

    However the default boot item is off by one... it tries to automatically boot into Text Mode, not Persistant Mode.

    What do I need to do to fix my menu.lst on this USB

    There's allot of info on this already posted around, just google "change grub default boot" and you'll easily find the answer.

    You mount it on a *nix box with a live cd for instance and edit the /your/mountpoint/boot/grub/menu.lst with a texteditor like vim or kate.

    i suggest you read the manual file for mount 'man mount'
