    Red face Trying to install Back Track on a Fast USB drive

    Hi to all. I am trying to install Backtrack on a fast read and write flash drive with 32 gigs of space. After typing fdisk /dev/sdb1 and pressing enter, here is the message I get:
    The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 30532. There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024, and could in certain setups cause problems with:
    1. software that runs at boot time (e.g. old versions of LILO)
    2. booting and partitioning software from other OSs (e.g. DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

    I am new to this and hope someone may be able to stear me in the right direction. Thanks to all in advance.
