Hi all -
I'm having the following problem (and not just when I'm trying to boot from USB):
When I try and boot (either from CD or USB Key), DSL crashes and hangs during the 'checking for USB' segment if I leave a USB key in the drive. It boots properly if there's nothing connected.
I have tried this both with two different USB keys (one with DSL installed, the other without) and I get the same problem.
If I disconnect them the boot works properly, which is how I managed to install the USB Key (booted from CD, plugged in the drive when DSL is up and used the apps->tools method).
This would be OK, except I want to be able to boot from the USB key, and obviously I can't do that without it being connected! If I try the nousb switch then it doens't find the KNOPPIX filesystem (not surprising really). 'fromusb' doesn't help either...
Please note that this is not specifically a problem with booting, but I didn't know where else to post it! Thx.
