Unexpected results attempting to install Squeeze(6.0.5) to USB flash drive
CAUTION: My goal does *NOT* resemble a normal install
I want to do a full install to a USB flash drive (thumb
drive). I am not looking to run the installer ISO from the
flash drive. I do not want a "LIVE install" with or without
Due to constraints of another personal project I first
investigated using LILO as bootloader. I made several tries
and always ended up in some sort of CLI shell.
*QUESTION:* Before I start a futile trouble shooting
procedure, is LILO known to work when installed from the
Debian 6.0.5 set of DVDs?
My second attempt was using Grub 1.99. It almost worked
satisfactorily. As I saw no way to disable OS_PROBER(sp?)
during the install, the menu written to the flash drive
includes the Operating Systems on the piece of hardware used
to write the flash drive.
This is obviously a problem when wishing to run Debian on
another set of hardware.
*QUESTION:* Is there a way to defeat/disable OS_PROBER(sp?)
