    Thumbs up --

    edit 080320

    had some problem but finally figured it out,
    after you made the stick (usb or sd) bootable under windows put it in the computer you want to use it in and boot up bt3 from the stick, when bt3 starts up go to the "system:/media/sdb1/boot/syslinux" (or whatever it is, mine is sdb1) directory and replace syslinux.cfg with the one that is attached, double click and it will open up in a text editor, edit the first block in syslinux.cfg so it matches your ext2 partition on your stick as shown below.
    in your ext2 partition make a folder and name it changes

    next time it boot up you can start doing changes and it will be saved.

    I have tried this in both of my laptops, hp nx7300 and asus eee 700 2gsurf with 4gb ultra II and 2gb extreme III sd cards and 2gb usb stick.
    Use "unzip syslinux" in konsole to unzip syslinux.cfg that is attached.

    Code:
    LABEL pchanges
    MENU LABEL BT3 Graphics mode with Persistent Changes
    KERNEL /boot/vmlinuz
    APPEND vga=0x317 initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw changes=/dev/sdb2 autoexec=xconf;kdm

    Hi,

    not sure if this is the right place to ask..

    Is it possible to install the /boot and /BT3 into an ext2 partition with persistent changes (with or without another ext2 partition to hold the changes)? We just use bootlilo.sh instead of bootinst.sh right? I tried but found that it either could not save the changes or it stops during boot with a "Fatal error occurred - can't setup union (aufs)". Any idea anyone?

    Hope to hide the unnecessary stuff when I plug the usb stick into a windows system

    so this mean that everything i do while using the flash is going to get saved automatically??? or do i have to actually send the files to the ext3 partition???
    eg... if i install a program like amsn, it will go to the root partition, so will this be saved automatically?? and will be there when i come back??? thanks...

    It's all automatic, no need for any user intervention at all. When you install anything, you just install it as normal, no need to add any extra paths or parameters.

    Default Hangs on boot

    Hi PH and thank you for the great TT.

    I followed your video instructions and got bt to install and run on my usb flash but..... It wasn't able to save. So I read some where that you used EXT2 instead of 3, so i went back and changed that also. Now at boot, it recognizes the sdb2 and would write to it but I keep getting stuck after the "Linux live end, starting the Linux Distribution" I get a (Usage: init 0123456SsQqAaBbCcUu) msg and it hangs there forever. Can you give me some advice on how to repair this?

    Thanks
