    Installing Slackware USB Thumb drive


    I have been searching the web for a way to install Slackware 12.1 to a USB thumb drive. I have both the 1st CD ISO and the USBboot.img file. I am trying to create a permanent install of Slackware to the USB drive. Is this possible or not? Also I know that Slackware is not made for Live installations like other distros, but hey if I can't do a regular install to a USB Drive I might as well try to make the impossible happen by making a Live Slackware for USB sticks.

    Here is a pretty easy way:

    Slax: your pocket operating system

    Slax makes a Slackware based USB distro.

    Hey I found out you can make USB devices show up as Fixed drives. Also I now have both Slax and BackTrack on USB thumb drives. I still want Slackware on a USB drive so I might make the computer see it as a Fixed drive. Then create the necessary partions using fdisk. Also thanks for the info about Slax. Now I'm wondering how to customize these to my liking.
