Using a pendrive Linux long term.
O.K. - followed the instructions (some time back) and built a pendrive Linux on a 16GB stick.
Nice fast stick, worked well.
So I ran it as a normal Linux, updating as new patches etc. were released.
Then one day I ran out of space.
Then I realised that the pendrive was configured with a pretend CD formatted as FAT32 and was only 713MB capacity (as reported by Windows).
So the basic question is:
does the first (boot) partition have to be CD size?
If I shrink the rest of the partitions and expand the FAT32 partition will it still boot?
I know I can suck it and see but I was wondering if anyone had already tried this and knew what constraints applied.
