    USB pen drive partitioning


    Hello,
    I would like to run a lightweight release from my pen drive, but still to use it as a mass storage device.
    Do I need to create another partition?
    If so, how to do it?

    Well, whichever distro you choose to install, just create an extra partition of acceptable size during the install and format it with whichever filesystem you want.
    Do you need a Howto for installing to pendrive?

    I'm trying to install XBMC.
    Yes, I'll be happy to get a HowTo, for installing the pendrive

    Check this website, it has several different howtos and some distribution specific articles.
