View Full Version : [all variants] Multiple distros on USB

July 6th, 2009, 04:54 PM
Hi everyone,

I want to setup an USB flash memory that has several bootable Linux distributions on it. One of them will be Ubuntu. But I have other distributions that use casper too. For example, I have Ubuntu 9.04 files on the /ubuntu directory on the USB, and BackTrack 4 (which is based on Ubuntu 8.10) files on the /bt4 directory on the same USB.

The only thing I have found looking up hundreds of pages is to use the kernel parameter live-media-path to indicate a directory to the files different from /casper, where files are searched for by default. But it doesn't work, or I'm doing something wrong. Has anyone been able to achieve this?

Thanks in advance
