Booting dsl from a USB stick (or booting any similar distro, for that matter)
Alright, I have a 512MB USB stick. I would like to boot "darn"smalllinux from it. (Yeah, I know that's not the proper name. I don't like swearing. Deal.) I know the dsl site sells bootable USB sticks with dsl loaded on already, but of course I don't want to have to buy that when I already have a stick.
I posted this on linuxquestions.org, also, so if you're seeing this again, sorry. I am adding a bit more here, though, as I've thought of an additional question. Will probably go back and edit the other later. But I digress.
Anyway, the main question is how on earth do I turn an ISO into an actual bootable image on the stick? Also, I could partition this stick (with a program from the manufactuer,) and I would like to know if I could put a partition in and still make one drive bootable? (BTW, yes my laptop can boot from a USB--I already verified that.) I'd like to have the second drive on the stick so I could save things, like settings or whatnot.
If I'm going to need a special program to do the actual imaging, please keep it in the price-range of free. :?
Thanks, all! ^_^
