No bios USB support.
Hi all, is it possible to boot a slackware usb install from lilo on my main drive. Reason being my bios don't support USB and i've never tried using slackware or any other OS's from USB.

Is there a floppy drive on that unit?

I have used a PLOP floppy to boot usb 1.1 with no bios support.

Plop can also be burned to a cd disk also and booted.

You'd need to place the kernel (and possibly initrd) into the /boot dir on the hard drive and point lilo at that.

Plop sounds good rokytnji, i'll give that ago.

gnashley, do you know of a HOWTO, i've googled around but not found anything.
