Live-flash mount r/w
I am working on a flash drive based off of the Feisty live-cd. It boots off of GRUB and for the most part everything works beautifully.
By default the flash drive fstype (FAT16) is automatically detected and the drive is mounted to /cdrom as read-only. I need to be able to access this partition as read/write, and I'm not sure which files I need to edit to make this happen.
What's really strange is that when running the OS (from both the CD and my flash drive) there is no listing for /cdrom in the mount table! This prevents me from doing a
mount -t vfat -o remount,rw /dev/sdxx /cdrom
I'm at my wits end trying to solve this, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Okay! So I figured it out, in case anyone is curious, even though I didn't get any replies.
If you are using the Feisty live-CD to make a live-flash and you want that flash drive to be read/write, do the following.
`fdisk -l` and find out what device/partition your flash drive is, e.g. /dev/sdd1
`sudo nano /etc/mtab' and add the following line at the bottom:
/dev/sdd1 /cdrom vfat ro 0 0
This is descriptive of what it's currently doing, mounting the flash drive read-only into /cdrom as type vfat. Then run:
`sudo mount -t vfat -o rw,remount /dev/sdd1 /cdrom`
and BOOM! you have r/w access.
