    Default New Live Installer project

    in order to have a break with my new wireless baby i begin to code a kind
    of quite new live installer


    all is under a gui
    its philosophy is to wipe partition table, create a new one,auto create 2 partitions and format them on the user selected usb drive. After that process, it will install bt on it make the drive bootable. hope to manage the reconstruction of kernel parameters to add the save change cheatcode......

    one part will be the bt2 os partition and will be fat32 with a size of 800 Mo
    the other will be the changes partition on wich we will save futur modification of filesystem and it will be ext2 and as large as the disk permit it.....


    so in 2 or 3 clicks we will get a newly partitioned formatted usb hd with 2 partitions, in 2 words a live install with permanent changes on the ext2 partition........
    this is a side project....so development will be slow....any help on how i can script mbr actions will be grantly appreciated......

    Thx in Advance......
    ps : all ideas welcome

    Great idea. Will make it so much more simple for newer people to install back track on a usb hd.

    ok so i put the project on algorythm and i feel it will be no too hard to realize

    ......
    first will be usb drive detection with an update fstab button in case you plug it after Installer start. We will also wipe partition table and format the two 2 partitions

    second will be source selection from an iso

    third will be transfering the content of mounted iso on usb

    fourth will be the MBR creation

    i already begin to code a gui for this project.....
    but it's a side project so maybe it will be for BT3...lol
