Sorry but I am a newbie to the Unix world and I just had one too many virus attacks on Windows - so here I am. I have been tearing my hair out trying to get my USB HDD to work using some instructions on the net:

I have created 3 partitions on a 80GB USB HDD
sda1 (Primary Linux) 7Gb
sda2 (Primary w95 FAT32) 72Gb
sda3 (Primary Linux Swap) 1Gb

Formatted partitions
mke2fs -j /dev/sda1
mkdosfs -vF 32 /dev/sda2
mkswap /dev/sda3

Moved iso to USSB Drive
su
cp -av /media/sda2/Users/DL/Kanotix/KANOTIX-2006-Easter-RC4.ISO /media/sda1
sync

Tried creating persistent home directory via Configure-Create a persistent directory but this did not work

Created unionrw.img
cd /media/sda1
dd if=/dev/zero of=unionrw.img bs=1M count=2000
make2fs -j unionrw.img

Made USB drive bootable
cp -av /cdrom/boot /media/sda1/
grub-install --root-directory=/media/sda1 /dev/sda

chmod 644 /media/sda1/boot/grub/menu.lst
mcedit /media/sda1/boot/grub/menu.lst

-- made some changes to grub menu
# my custom config for booting Kanotix from a USB external drive
title Boot Kanotix From USB External Drive
kernel (hd1,0)/boot/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off nomce quiet noprompt noeject bootusb2 fromiso=KANOTIX-2006-Easter-RC4.ISO unionrw=/dev/sda1/unionrw.img home=/dev/sda1/knoppix.img
initrd (hd1,0)/boot/miniroot.gz

Everything worked except the persistent home directory stuff. I cannot write to /dev/sda1 for some reason. When I boot enable USB and boot it sits with 'GRUB' in the corner of a black screen & a flashing cursor. When I boot with live CD and provide options 'bootusb2 fromiso=KANOTIX-2006-Easter-RC4.ISO' (hoping to read the ISO on USB HDD) it says 'Can't find KANOTIX filesystem, sorry Dropping to shell..'

Cannot understand what I am doing wrong also why the persistent home does not work- please help.

Thanks I followed the instructions in the post you refer but this did not work. Also being a Windows person I had a lot of trouble editing the 'linuxrc' file without having a GUI. The entry in the file refered looks lik ethe following in my file:

test -f /modules/scsi/usb-storage.o && $INSMOD /modules/scsi/libusual.o && $INSMOD /modules/scsi/usb-storage.o >/dev/null 2>&1

Can you please verify if the above is correct - I am running blind here! Also if this file on my USB HDD and it cannot get to my USB Drve in the first place since my USB Boot GRUB menu does not work - how is this going to help anyway?

Thanks.
