Install slackware from USB drive.
Is it possible to install slackware from a USB drive? I have a CD with the kernels and such (basically everything except /slackware), and an external USB drive with the packages. The problem is that I can't manage to get any of the slackware installer kernels to recognise my usb drive. I've tried three or four, but no dice. dmesg reports that a new USB device is found everytime I plug the drive in, but /proc/partitions shows only my internal harddrive. I've tried #/etc/rc.d/rc.usb start and #hotplug, neither of which solve the issue. I've confirmed that the external drive is working using knoppix. Google has everything under the sun about installing TO a USB drive (which is my next project), but nothing about install From such a drive. Is there perhaps something I need to pass to lilo?
