A fellow at the Mint forum gave a very detailed explanation about how to set up a dual boot but did not mention if I needed a certain program to make the flash drive live. Fairly certain Unetbootin does not work with my biometric flash drive.
Home network: Twin netbooks... One as a back-up and recovery machine... the other for mobile use. Plus a lappy that is for experiments and mutlimedia. I am reluctant to set up a wired network because the mess of wires I am using now is bad enough and obviously I want the mobile netbook to be part of the home network when not at home. Currently I am using teamviewer to connect all 3 but the lag is a bit much. Is there a better way to have the 3 computers linked via the internet? Z/Z
I agree that a wireless router is a better solution. Thumb drives are pretty cheap. Something 4 gigs in size should be more then sufficient. Besides, the only way to see if unetbootin works (or not) is to try it with your thumb drive. If Mint can read and write to it successfully, unetbootin should (in theory) work just fine. Unetbootin doesn't work well with non-Linux distros such as Solaris Express or PC-BSD because initrd doesn't launch these, yet is installed anyway. Therefore, its Linux only if you use unetbootin
