USB Directory Installation?


Zenwalk 7.4
  1. Selected keypad
  2. Wiped entire drive
  3. 6gb Logical swap 82
  4. rest gb primary 83 BOOT

After, I click auto install and will not allow any entry for DIRECTORY.

The only other available drive is sdb (USB), so I tried:
Code:
  • /dev/sdb
  • /dev/sdb1
  • /dev/sdb/zenwalk
  • /dev/sdb1/zenwalk
  • /dev/sdb/isolinux
  • /dev/sdb1/isolinux
I read this... specifically
Quote:
then you boot the USB stick, but immediately exit the installer, create a directory and mount the USB stick to it, then restart the installer and point it at that directory.
HOW do I do this ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I mean, keystrokes, code, give it all to me. When I exit the installer, it just boots a loop, so I dont see how I can
Code:
mkdir
or anything like that. Also,
Code:
ALT+F1;F2;F3;F4
do not allow me to input any useful code, F4 is the only one that lets me type, but will not actually input anything when I hit enter.

Mainly, I think all I need is that, but shouldn't there already be a documented solution to this mystery (installation overall)?

Alright so I got it mounted, but how do I restart the installer without losing the mount?
