    Default Flash drive redirects to hard drive?

    Hello, I am planning on putting BT (live install) on a 1gig flash drive.

    My question is, when I boot from the 1gig flash drive, is there a way to make the files I save save to the harddrive? Reason is pretty obvious; I don't have much more room on the flash drive.

    Or am I completely off to begin with?

    Yes you can, just adjust the changes bootcode and point it to an ext2 or ext3 partition on your HDD.

    You could also edit the "changes=dev/hda#" addition to bootinst.bat to reflect the internal HD partition, correct?
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Yes, That is exactly what I meant, it is actually the .cfg that needs changing, but you got the idea

    Talking i just did this

    Tyraeon,
    I just did this.

    I used Partition Magic to create a partition on my windows drive as a EXT2 partition. then in the cfg and bootinst file and it works awesome. it really does.

    Balding Parrot did an amazing tut on this procedure
    "forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=7844&highlight=save"

    the procedure is just for one larger usb drive, but you can use the steps to do this on the usb/hdd combo too.

    just letting you know it can and is being done...
