Ok...how to install Linux (RH9 or any free distro) to USB drive?
I have to install it to a USB drive...I have no choice.
Primary drive has loads of important XP programs.
Slave drive has about 80 gigs worth of files. Already has 4 partitions but the two I can use have bad blocks.
I have a nice new 80 gig USB drive, already partitioned and planned out...but Anaconda doesn't see it.
If you can help me, please keep in mind that due to said problems, I haven't exactly had much ability to experiment with linux seeing how if I installed much more than the defaults it'd fall into bad block territory and bork the system.
How do I install Linux to my USB drive? Details, please...
OR, if there's another free distro (which uses gnome) that doesn't give me a hard time installing to a USB drive, what is it? <--- best option
OR again, if there's a way I can keep / down to say 1.5 gigs then install the rest on the new HD, how do I do this?
Oh, and advice to everyone, don't be cheap like me and buy a SimpleTech drive. =p You'll be sorry.
P.S. On a separate note, in my partitioning, should the * partition be /boot or / ?
