View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual boot via USB drive

July 12th, 2009, 08:23 PM
I have an existing installation of Linux from another vendor. I am having issues with 9.04 and this other flavor of Linux coexisting,

I would like to install Ubuntu Desktop on another partition and have it boot from a thumb drive. I just need the boot directory and the master boot record on the thumb drive, everything else can reside on /dev/sdb1.

Is this possible?
