    Default bt .iso > usb

    If you are installing bt3 from linux or bt2 to a usb you will need to give three files permissions in order to runn the .sh lilo boot installer
    /boot/inst.sh

    /boot/syslinux/lilo

    /boot/syslinux/syslinux

    I am going to try and boot it right now. will report back.

    EDIT: I'm having some issues with booting from usb as well. Will keep working on it

    Heres what I did. Getting ready to reboot and give it a go

    Edit this worked perfect
    steps I took
    Device san disk cruzer 2 gig
    formated 1.5 gig fat32 and .5 linux swap
    copied bt3 and boot folders to usb
    gave the 3 files permisions I mention below
    run installer
    reboot
    Note: I have only tried the kde menu selection but the dvd .iso compiz works so I assume it does of dvd.

    Only issue- It seems the alfa drivers are not as good. Normally my alfa usb sees like 10 networks when I use the wlassistant but now it only sees mine.
    Code:
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
    
    root@backtrack ~ # cd /media/disk
    root@backtrack disk # cd boot
    root@backtrack boot # cd syslinux
    root@backtrack syslinux # chmod 777 lilo
    root@backtrack syslinux # chmod 777 syslinux
    root@backtrack syslinux # cd ..
    root@backtrack boot # chmod 777 bootinst.sh
    root@backtrack boot # ./bootinst.sh

    I also have a 2GB SanDisk Cruzer USB, formatted the same 1.5GB FAT32 and the rest as swap and I cannot get the drive to become bootable using the DVD rar.

    My MD5 is correct. I have copied both boot and bt3 to the root of the drive many different times and have tried both the Win bat and the bootinst.sh methods, and I still do not have a bootable USB (and yes I do have my BIOS set correctly as well!)
    dd if=/dev/swc666 of=/dev/wyze

    I booted up BT3 cd with my usb drive in with the files already copied to it. Ran the ./bootinst.sh. Rebooted, took out the cd, and it booted off the usb drive. No problems here. It's freaking fast.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!

    are you sure your running the bootinsall.sh file from the correct directory. for me it is in

    bt~#cd /media/disk
    disk~#ls
    bt3
    boot

    I copied the files onto my usb drive and ran the bat from the cmd and it ran perfectly. No idea why you guys are having problems.

    Ditto. I did what the install.txt file said to do. And IT WORKED!

    I thought Compiz was on the Usb install? I can't find it... maybe I'm read tall did.

    Edit, nevermind, I'm a retard like I thought.
