Smile How to Manually edit which partition to install OS

Dear All,

Basically i would like to install my Endian Firewall which under Red Hat Enterprise Linux distro on pendrive.

During the installation, the OS choose/decide the install destination for me automatically, whereby i cannot choose it myself. Is that possible i can edit the code inside the package, so that it will detect "sdb1"/pendrive and install the OS on it(pendrive)?

Please advice,

Are you sure there is no option during installation to partition the drive manually? I've never installed a Linux distro that didn't give this option, including CentOS which is almost an identical copy of RHEL.
