How to install Suse Linux on USB stick.


Any one pls explain me, how to install linux on USB memory drive.

I am able to install on to USB stick, it boots up to some extent but later it logs a mesage /dev/sdb2 not found and stops further. Prompt will come but nothing will work.

Pls let me know what else I need to change in the GRUB boot loader configuration.

Also let me know, the name that linux recognizes the USB stick while booting up. i.e. is it /dev/sdbX /dev/usbX ....

So that I can make modifications accordingly in the grub boot loader conf file.

Thanks in advance,

I don't think that this is doable with SuSE, but i think thatg it is posswible with a distro called SLAX and Damn Small Linux.
