Dear list,

I have live usb system where I already have debian, puppy, ubuntu etc.....
I like to boot backtrack iso from this usb drive.

Here is the entry for BT5 I have added at grub.cfg

menuentry "BT-5" {
loopback loop /BT5-KDE-64.iso
linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz  BOOT=casper boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/BT5-KDE-64.iso  nopersistent noprompt --
initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.gz

but grub throws errors as

error:can't read linux header
error:you need to load linux kernel first

Any idea what is missing here ? I have already checked the iso by mounting as loop device
and confirmed the presence of casper/vmlinuz and casper/initrd.gz. So why is it complaining ?


Why would you not ask on backtrack forums? It is related to there mess. Or even better GOOGLE your issue, I got quite a few including guides to multi boot on USB with BT.

Hint there error is pretty obvious if you read what its telling you ;)
