Hi all. I have some questions...
I divided my usb flash in some partitions. First partition I use for documents(FAT32), second is Ubuntu LiveCD(EXT2) and third is truecrypt volume. Ubuntu LiveCD image I wrote with soft Unetbootin and everything is working fine. Now I want make fourth partition and and install OpenBSD. I do not know if it is possible at all? And how can I setup GRUB or other boot loader that during loading choose witch partition(respectively OS) to boot - Ubuntu LiveCD or OpenBSD?
And the second question - can I use OpenBSD filesystem on USB or it's journaling filesystem like EXT3/4 and not recomended use it on USB drive?
Almost any modern linux or bsd can be installed to a usb just as if it were a common hard drive. You do have me confused a bit on the unetbootin on ext2. This may have to be cleared up before anyone can guess how to get this working as a real install. Some of the bsd's may allow one to be installed using other pendrivelinux.com tricks in a not real install.
I try to use non-journaling when I install to flash more because of limits on usb speed. I try to keep swap off also. Not sure I could prove it but usb flash drives are not dependable in my opinion.
