    Ghost 11 will see them.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I was able to use partimage off of the System Rescue CD. Its a free solution, but messy. It took a while to get it to work and you have to grab partitions 1,3 and 4 individually. It also took a bit to make sure it would work downloading the images from FTP.

    What is this guide for? It is hard to know from the title. Does it mean to install Backtrack 2 to a usb stick similar to a live cd except allow changes to be saved on it? Is it possible to compile software and have that saved too or only configuration files that are in the user's home directory?

    it's a way to complete a kind of live installation wich allow you to save changes (all changes) on a secondary partition onto your usb or onto your fixed hard drive, you can also set up a swap space for your live install............

    In partitioning my 4GB USB flash drive with qtparted, everything went fine. I had 4 primary partitions (1.25GB, 500MB, 1GB, 1GB) and they were formatted (FAT32, SWAP, EXT2, FAT32). Problem is, in windows, only the first FAT32 partition is useable. Under disk management the fourth partition gives errors when you attempt to assign a drive letter to it or format it. Is this a limitation if Windows? (Vista Business x32 BTW) If so, it's not a big deal, I will just use three partitions. Will this work with an extended partition holding ext2 and FAT32 (parts 3&4)? Thanks for your great guides!
