appologies if im in the wrong part of the forum.. ive already posted in another part of the forum but not the right place i dont think..soz.
ex windows user and new mint 14 convert trying to understand the terminal and its usage..very unnerving for a first time user..basically im trying to copy an image of the file hakiu-anyboot.image from my desktop to a usb flash drive..(not sure if its supposed to be dev/sdc or dev/sdc1)
i found this script on the mint forums somewhere i think, looked so many places i cant remember..brain burn.
dd if=path/to/haiku-anyboot.image of=/dev/sd[x] bs=1M
i then modified it as to what i think is the right path, though probually isnt..actually theres no doubt its wrong..
dd if= home/paul/desktop/haiku-anyboot.image/to/haiku-anyboot.image of=/dev/sdc bs=1M
and i get
dd: unrecognised operand error message and it advises to see dd help which i tried but couldnt make heads or tails of it..
if anyone could please put a first time user out of his misery i would appreciaate it.
it probualy seems like such a simple thing to other users..
tried getting me feet wet but forgot me wellies..
