Booting from USB, CDROM, etc
When selecting whether to boot linux from a USB drive, CDROM, or SATA drive it looks like I have to take 2 (or more) routes:
1. Learn how to create an Initrd image and incorporate it into my GRUB configuration
2. Learn how to boot with ISOLINUX
Before I jump into those guides which seem as big as the LFS guide, can anyone tell me if there is any simple solution?
I've booted my LFS (or should I say GRUB only) on a USB drive and it generates an error when mounting "root=" claiming my USB drive /dev/sdb1 couldn't be found. I get a list of "available" partitions which are all of the /dev/sda* persuasion, and thus, the local computer drive (which I do not want to set as root)
I guess it's not as simple as setting root=/dev/sdb1 or somehow inserting a script to mount /dev/sdb1 before that line is called?
