Linux On Flash USB Drive
 
Hi

Dear All Long time haven't wrote to you and I wish that my request got a solution.

I have a Kingston 2GB U3 Flash USB. I wish to install any version of inux and use it as my mobile OS. To be able to boot my systme within it from any PC I want.


I need your assistance in this matter ASAP..

Thanks In Advance,

Have a look on the distrowatch website, you can use the search to find distro's intended for usb keys. Last time I looked, slackware was the highest rated but that was about a year ago.
cheers

Puppy installs very nicely on USB drives.
