Awesome, can't wait to give it a try, I did manage to get backtrack4 beta booting off usb and got the wireless card working, now I just want to migrate this XP Home install completely while being to cheap to get an external rom.
Well I grabbed the latest usbimage from the pxe and usb installer directory from my slackware iso, done the above slackboot commands from alien, booted up my netbook with USB and got a no operating system error, the files did copy over from the dd command, is there something that I am missing? Got the fill image on my desktop shared out for the rest of the install, im just not getting that far yet.
