I am having serious trouble getting a persistent USB up and running. Probably because my 4 gig stick was a cheap ebay jobbie. Before i try what i was thinking, i thought it best to check here for support and possible downsides. I have a 250 gig external and wondered if it was possible for me to install Backtrack on that as persistent. I figure the answer is yes but i have 3 NTFS partitions on it and one of which is a live version of GParted and i'm not sure if that will conflict in booting Backtrack. Any help would be appreciated and also, if someone that has done this from a removable hard drive could let me know of any downsides that would be awesome
