I am kinda new to linux so I don't know what Im doing. When i ran UNetbootin i choose Xubuntu, went down to install on my hd and clicked OK or watever. Everything went well until after I rebooted. An error message said that it cannot find grldr in all drives. BTW Ive copied the latest menu.lst and grldr in the root of my drive. What did i do wrong??
Alright.... So I chose Ubuntu 8.04 (Nonlive)and it downloaded and installed fine, but when I rebooted to select 'UNetBootin' right after the boot up/logo screen, it flashed something, hit 'ESC' to go to menu, and if you don't in the 3 seconds it allows me, it flashes some more then my compute restarts.
What's going on?
In a nutshell: the eeepc uses unionfs to merge a "factory installation", stored in /dev/sda1, and a "user modified partition", /dev/sda2. Unetbootin installs everything in /dev/sda2, which is not seen by grub by default. What I did was to edit grub on boot, and edit one entry to make it look exactly like the one written by unetbootin in /dev/sda2/ (except for the root, which needs to be the second partition). That's it.
Okay, I let it sit at the 'Booting UnetBootin' Screen for about 5 minutes, and an error popped up.
find --set-root /unetbtin/ubnkern
ERROR 15: FILE NOT FOUND
Ehh... Any suggestions?

As for the others, I'll get around to them eventually
I'm trying to install Ubunto 8.04 on a new partition (Labeled 'E'), used the NTFS filesystem.
The only folders at C:\unetbtin was the UNetBootin program, which opened right up into the window. I tried setting it to copy to drive E but that wouldn't allow me to... Probably for the better.
Got the full script of sorts it shows me while trying to install on GRUB:
Filesystem type is NTFS
partition type 0x7
[linux bzImage, setup=x1e001 size=0x196f78]
Huh. hd0,0... Shouldn't it be something like (hd0,1), referring to the second partition of the first disk, or am I completely wrong? x]

This may have been covered already, but searching the thread didn't turn up anything, so here goes...
I'm attempting to install Debian testing (i386) on my laptop with UNetbootin; I use wireless exclusively on this box, yet the installer doesn't allow for wireless connectivity at the outset. Predictably, DHCP probing fails, and I'm not able to continue.
Is there any way -- or some other tool -- to get the job done, short of burning a DVD? I already tried downloading the full 4GB iso and using that with UNetbootin, but I'm essentially told to insert the DVD into my optical drive.
Alternatively, is there a distro readily installable with UNetbootin that will optionally connect to a wireless network _before_ an FTP install?
