Live USB Questions!

Postby xvedejas on Mon Apr 28, 2008 8:47 pm

1. Has anyone attempted to install mint on USB? What guide did they follow? Was it a success? Any hints/tips/etc I might need to know to attempt this?

2. If I remember correctly, you have to format a USB drive to be able to boot with it. Will I be able to reuse the drive? Reformat it? Decide to use it just for data again?

3. Will my USB drive work? I have a 1gb Lexar "JumpDrive Lightning".

Thanks for any help!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There's a lengthy topic about this in the howto section

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
