grub on /dev/sdc and live-usb on /dev/sdc1
If you understand the title then you know what I want to do here. I've searched high and low, but what I find is either:
install live on memory stick (not a usb hdd with multiple paritions)
install linux to external hdd (config specific--not live)
What would really be helpful is a howto on converting a live-cd iso9660 image to a hard drive partition. The iso images use isolinux--I don't need that--I'm using grub from the mbr of the device.
I prefer Debian, but Debian-live seems to only include instructions for installing to a memory stick and it uses isolinux--it won't boot on my machine anyway--but grub will boot on my machine from the external hdd.
