- Format a USB drive in FAT and copy all the files of the LiveCD on to it.
- When the entire copying process is complete, remove the following files from the USB drive:
- start.exe - start.bmp - start.ini - autorun.inf - the directory (folder) "bin" - the directory (folder) "programs"
- Copy the entire contents of the "isolinux" folder to the root folder of the key.
- Also copy the following files to the root:
- casper/vmlinuz - casper/initrd.gz - install/mt86plus
- Rename "isolinux.cfg" to "syslinux.cfg".
- Remove "isolinux.bin".
- Edit the file "syslinux.cfg", and delete all appearances of "/casper/". The system will look for the Linux image to begin loading in /casper/, but you put the files needed to boot in the root of the key, so in this file you are removing /casper/xxx.xxx, and leaving only xxx.xxx.
- Finish the setup by entering the following command in a DOS command prompt (without the quotes): "syslinux E:" where E is the letter of USB key and syslinux is the program which makes it possible to boot from the key.
