Create a USB Boot Disk from the Custom Kernel and System Image
It's been a while since I've booted into Linux so bare with me. After reading and trying Eric Hameleers' (Alien BOB) boot disk on USB device and countless of hacking the usb-pxe installer script(s), I finally gave up.
For starters, I can partition, format, and mount my USB stick from the command line (fdisk, mkdosfs, mount) -- it took me a while to enable all the necessary modules and kernel flags since I'm using a custom kernel and apparently had a number of features disabled. I am also capable of just copying files manually onto my USB drive.
My question is, how can I make a bootable USB drive from the custom kernel and system image? Is there a way I can also include a full Slackware DVD (minus source/) into the mix? I'm a bit fuzzy when it comes to what constitutes a bootable disk. 'makebootdisk' works for floppy, but with new kernels, this is just not feasible anymore so I had to switch to USB (I'm a late bloomer).
P.S. I'm working on Slackware 12.2
