Dear sir :
I have 2 usb enclosed box (cd-rom,hd)1 usb floppy.
my pc bios support all kind of bootup devices.but the problem is that i can't
boot up linux cd-rom and usb hd and can't be mounted .
my kernel version is the latest stable one,should i complie the kernel from sounce code? and how?
I have installed 2 distros in my usb hd box(sdb)but can't boot up even when i have bootloader ready?usb cd-rom,usb floppy also can't.
usb cd-rom (scd0)
usb hd (sdb)
usb fd (sda1)
how can i be able to mount all these usb things and auto boot ?
by the way,i have 1 internal,atapi dvd-ram(rw) drive which is about 4.7gb per side (over 9gb total)and good for make it like virtual hard disk. (hdc)(scondary master)
my pc's bios also support it to boot but the problem is how can i make it to boot linux system and mounted?
i had tried install distro there during setup and expected to repartition and format but distro doesn't show list this drive as a hard disk so i can not install???
it is very handy when you can use dvd-ram(rw)discs to switch between os just insert the dvds containing different distro os.and good for backup,exp too.!
I don't know if any 1 tries before ?
after all, i want to have usb hd and this dvd-ram(rw) able to boot load many distro !!!
why is it always not catch up to currect tech ? nearly all problems linux have are about moderm technology like usb, sata,scsi,hyper threading....,interface...etc can not supported by linux kernel so caused install problems ???
