    PM me when you know you are going to make the trip, and sure we can have a beer or several.

    Good morning!

    I tried your method.
    Now, I am able to boot from my USB Stick.

    But I have 4 more Questions, maybe you can help me?!


    1.

    now open the syslinux folder and open syslinux.cfg in wordpad as notepad does not display it correctly

    -- after changing the text in syslinux.cfg i only can save it, as a text document. The symbol changed to the symbol of wordpad, cause i opened it with this programm.
    But if i go on this symbol there is written that`s still a *.cfg -file. So it seems to be ok? OR


    Could this be a problem?

    2.

    I have problems with the last step.

    I write: mkswap /dev//sda2
    The system response: Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 1044602 kB
    no label, UUID ,,,,, etc
    ( That seems to be ok)

    But then i type:

    swapon: dev/sda2/

    and now the System responses:

    swapon: dev/sda2: Device or resource busy ...

    WHATS wrong in this case ;-((
    Could this be a problem?


    I tested netmonitor modus/ airodump and aireplay injection and it was all ok.



    3.

    When i install new programms like aicrack new version, maybe wesside-ng, airraid etc..

    one time i install it,is it installed even when i start next time booting? Or have i type "make" "make install" again and again?

    4.

    I did it like you said i formatted the last partition (4) to Fat32 maybe to store some stuff on it when i am using windows.

    But with windows i only have access to the first fat 32 partition.
    I can see this partition with paragon but i dont know the option i have to do.

    It seems so that i can give this partition a new "in germany we say Laufwerksbuchstaben" like E: or J: but maybe this can make trouble with backtrack??


    ps: while installing the partitions with qtparted i choose always the first point (i dont know what it was called; the other point was something like "extended partition" . I hope this is ok?!

    remove the // in your mkswap command and put / only

    the rest of your questions are widely covered here....search...

    The // in my mkswap command was only a failure written in this text.

    In Bt2 i tried it only with /
    ..

    I dont have problems with the mkswap command.


    If i type after that swapon /dev/sda2

    It appears swapon: /dev/sda2: Device or resource busy...

    Thats my problem ;-(

    As you have been able to boot from it I would say that none of that was a problem.

    1. change you display properties to not hide extensions for known extensions, and you will be able to see what the extension is.

    2. backtrack should pick up that there is a swap partition and use it automatically, that step is only a precaution. You can test this by running leetmode which will show you how much swapspace you have, if you don't want leetmode running you can run exit leetmode to close it.

    3. that is the point of this type of install, it saves your changes so you don't have to do that every time.

    4. That is because you have installed to a USB stick, and the problems windows has with more than one partition on a USB stick. And changing the drive letter in windows shouldn't make any difference to backtrack. This was one reason that I said that most of this applies to a USB HDD install.


    Hope that helps
