Transcend JetFlash Mini 256MB - works perfect.
USB Stick preparation:
I used the WinImage method, described elsewhere in this forum, so I was able to prepare the USB Stick completely from within Windows. Just one point:
I had to use bootusb-0.8 with dsl-0.9.3-syslinux.iso instead of dsl-0.9.3.iso, because the boot image also seems to use syslinux. I also tried dsl-0.9.3.iso, but it didn't work for me ("KNOPPIX filesystem not found..." or so).
I use a ASUS P5GD1 with AMI BIOS v1007.
Steps required to boot from USB Stick:
1) insert prepared USB stick
2) reboot and enter BIOS (press "Del" at boot time)
3) Enter the "Boot" Menu. If your Stick is correctly prepared, a Sub menu "Removable Drives" will appear. Enter it.
4) Be sure to set "1st Drive" to "JetFlash"
5) Leave Sub menu "Removable Drives"
6) Enter Sub menu "Boot Device Priority"
7) Be sure, "[JetFlash]" appears in the list. Adjust boot priority, so the PC will boot from JetFlash instead of HDD.
8) Thats it. Leave BIOS by pressing "F10" and "Enter". Your system should now boot from the USB Stick.
My SATA-HDD is not recognized.
The P5GD1 features an on-board Marvell Yukon PCI Express Gigabit Network Adapter, which seems not to be supported by DSL out of the box. Anyway, The Driver is available from Marvell (sk98lin), though I didn't have had the time yet to compile and test it.
