As soon as i had an ubuntu 8.10 CD i tried to install it onto a 1G flash drive (with USB creator), it was working prety well, but then it crashed because i tried to store more than 300MB (the space remaining after install). i then realised that 1G is just not enough space.
so now i want to install it on a 4G, i want a bootble operating system with plenty of space for extra software and files to be stored on the system and to be left with space that i can store spearate files on (for transfering from computer to computer) that i don't have to boot the OS to see.
How would you (as a community) recomend me to set this up?
how much space should i allow for each requierment?
hopefully someone out there has enough experience to inform me.
Thanks
