Here is the background of my small project....
I have 2 travel devices: CF8GB and SD8GB (both extlinux multibooting; same content: knoppix,tinycorelinux,partedmagic,slitaz,puppy, warry,slicko,hwlist,ubcd,keyboard changes, start grub4dos boot, start plop bootmanager...).
Both devices can be mounted on PCs (when travelling; showing linux to friends; installing Linux on a colleague PC).
In particularly the SD card: I have it in everytime my pocket, with an USB multiadapter and a DSL-USB-Modem (www.fonic.de):
I can use nearly any PC I have in my hands anywhere and go into the internet.
I want to extend these CF and SD devices with salix live.
SD: can be mounted on an USB adapter. In this case a USB booting PC can start with one of the linux distro.
can be placed in an SD port. Possible on newer PCs.
CF: can be mounted on an IDE adapter or on an USB adapter. I can nearly start any PC with it (IDE is good in case the PC is not USB booting)
For the reason, I dont achieve a proper booting of salixlive in extlinux (the CD is with grub2; and I dont understand all grub2 entries); see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...format-911876/
, the Idea I have now is (example the SD8GB):
- boot a PC with the SD8GB (on USB adapter or direct in the PC)
- in the extlinux menue of the SD, choose the submenue "start grub2"
- start grub2 placed on this SD card (ext2!)
- grub2 should then find the salixlive data and start (hopefully..).
If I chainload the entry "start grub2" to the SD, then I will probably be again in the extlinux menue.
For example, on this SD, I can start grub4dos (not chainloading), then this allow all grub4dos functionality (use of memdisk for example).
The same is perhaps possible with grub2? (for start of salix live)
