Re: howto create the bootable USB-Stick using linux ?

Hi

Use syslinux, http://syslinux.zytor.com/.

fdisk the usb key
create a type 6 (vfat)
format the partition

cat mbr.bin > /dev/sdX (where mbr.bin is from the syslinux package)

cp all the files from the isolinux directory on the CD into the new partition

Change isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg

run syslinux on /dev/sdaX

That should give you a bootable USBkey
