Thanks for the advice, however it's still not working.

I get the following errors during boot...

bread in fat_access failed
  I/O error: dev 08:01, sector 14
(a lot of times)

bash: /bin/su: Input/output error
(followed by several lines saying...)
cloop: error -3 uncompressing block 95 65536/0/30468/0 1690555-1721023

Also, if I don't use the 'toram' options, the errors seem to continue ad infinitum.  If I do use the 'toram' option, I get all the errors, but it does finally boot into XWindows, however my settings are not available, & the backup process fails as it says that the file system is read only (as it's mounted as /cdrom/.

Any advice greatly welcomed.  I hope it's not just that my memory stick is not compatible.

If you are experiencing i/o errors upon initial USB boot, then that is not the virtual hard drive but a likely bad installation or possibly a failing pendrive. Try to booting USB natively with the options of:

boot:  dsl base norestore

These options will ignore the virtual drive, or any other autoscan of backup and extensions.
