    Questions regarding Ubuntu 10.10 and Grub2

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to make an Ubuntu 10.10 Bootable USB Stick, but before starting that I would like to know the following details please

    1. Do I have to install Grub2 in the USB Stick also for Ubuntu 10.10?
    2. Install I first Grub2 in the USB Stick, before installing Ubuntu 10.10 or viceversa?
    3. How big shout it be the volume of the USB Key to install there both, Ubuntu 10.10 and Grub2?

    Thanks in advance for any kind information, regards

    Answers to your questions depend on how you plan to use the usb stick. If you want to be able to boot it on different machines, you need to install Grub2. Installing Grub2 is part of the installation process of Ubuntu. Read everything on each step if you are unfamiliar.

    If you are always going to boot the usb stick from the same computer, you do not necessarily need to install Grub2. An answer to that would depend upon what operating system you have on the computer which you would boot from.

    More details would help members to help you.
