    Dual Boot USB-Stick (qemu / Persistentboot)


    Hello, I am wondering if there a way to install Linux on a 8Gigabyte Pendrive that I can either boot from USBDrive as a OS.
    Or run Virtual Using Qemu or something? And then automaticly make it setup correctly so all the USB-Slots work and the Network Connection works?
    Is there a Tutorial or a Document about this?

    Thanks

    Kind Regards,
    Robin Vossen

    There are plenty of distros that specialise in this as well as tutorials that allow you to configure existing distros to boot from USB.

    Check out Slax, it's my favourite. It's less than 200MB and has a full KDE environment on it. Network and USB will all work automatically unless you have some funny configuration or hardware that generally doesn't work in Linux.
