    I keep getting an error no boot sector found on disc when trying to boot. Do you know why that is happening?

    I followed your tut and it works great on my 2GB USB flash drive.

    I have noticed that my changes partition (changes=/dev/sda3) is becoming full rather quickly.

    Can I move the changes I definitely want to keep to the first partition (fat32) where they will become loaded with each time I reboot?
    If so, do the changes go into the /bt/modules folder?

    this is probably a noobish question...

    but if I'm installing it on a 1gig flash drive, wouldn't creating a 1.5gig partition be impossible?

    If you managed to fit a 1.5 GB partition onto a 1 GB flash drive, let me know how you did it.

    If you need to ask a question like that, then give up now.

    short answer: yes, impossible.
    Solution: Buy a bigger flash drive.

    "USB STICK size depending on how many of these features you want (1GB MIN for the basic live or 2GB MIN for live with changes)"

    Yes, you can install BT|2 on a 1GB flash drive, but that doesn't leave you with much room for changes. If you want to use a 1GB, make your remaining partitions smaller than described in the tut. I believe this tut was more aimed at people who will be using a USB based portable HD.
