    I understand how chroot works. chroot by default looks for a /bin/bash. In the partition that I am trying to chroot exists two directories, BT, and boot. There is not a /bin/bash in there nor is there any other shell that chroot can use. Correct me if I am wrong. I do not see how this guide is possible.

    What do you mean by this? Should "changes=..." go on the same line as "append" or should it go on a new line after the line with "append"?

    Default clear

    Well Linuxbeast, there are two things that are very clear.

    1 The suggestions given to you by Balding_Parrot are clear, well defined and workable.

    2 You are not able to comprehend what is required. I really doubt the usefulness of continuing with these elementary linux discussions.

    We have all tried to help you on so many occasions.

    I really do feel that you would be better suited with another distribution to learn some skills and then try again.

    One final hint is that in the file syslinux.cfg is a line that has 'append' as the first command. That is the line which needs considering. The amendment which you are to commit is 'changes=/dev/sdax' where x is the device token.

    If you don't understand that...then I think we might have to think again.

    Do let us know. We can't wait.

    Whatever, I don't care to argue with a bunch of crap. I just wanted to share with others how I accomplished the usb install with changes.

    I have a 2 gb flash drive.

    I created 1 gb fat32 filesystem and copied BT and boot to it.

    Next I ran the /boot/somethinginstall.sh file.

    I unmounted the partition, so that I could resize it to 700 mb.

    I did not create swap because it's a useless waste of space on usb drives when I have 2 gb of ram in dual channel.

    Next I created sdc2 which took all remaining freespace and gave it the reiserfs filesystem.

    I did all of the installation so far from vmware server but not using a virtual hard disk. VMWare has been configured to use my usb disk instead and boot the bt2final.iso cd instead of using my cdrom.

    Next I booted BT2 from USB, not in VMWare. I edited the syslinux.cfg file and added changes=/dev/sdc2. Then I ran syslinux. I rebooted and my configuration had been saved.
