Im trying to make my jump drive boot Linux. Preferably Knoppix the Audit edition.

Its a 1gig Lexar. I formatted it with the HP Tool, then made it bootable with syslinux. I've tried copying 2 different versions of linux live CDs to the jump drive.

I was able to successfully boot off the drive but it keeps telling me that the bootable image can't be found.

I tried typing in the actual image name then at the "boot:" prompt then it tells me that the image is corrupt. Even thought the same image works booting from CD?

Has anyone here done this successfully?
I really have no real purpose for wanting to do this other than CDs scratch easily and a jump drive is just easier to carry and conceal. (ANd I can download and change files on a jump drive) I like Knoppix Audit edition because of its many useful security tools pre-installed...

Yeah I got that part working. Its actually booting off of the drive with a boot loader called syslinux. But then the loader cant find any of the linux images I put on it.

Grrrrrrr.

Perhaps Ill try a differnt boot loader...
