Linux Fedora 14 Linux on USB using liveusbcreator using Windows XP
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2011
Trying to create a bootable Linux application on a USB flash drive using the liveusb-creator. PC being use has Windows XP (Service Pack-3) OS. Research on web implies that version of syslinux file with liveusb-creator is not compatible with creating a bootable application at this time. Downloaded new version of syslinux-4.02.zip file but not sure how to make it current version for use when liveusg-creator is run. Tried to extract new syslinux file tusong windows explorer but no luck.
Question: Suggestions/recommendations for creating a bootable Fedora 14 Linux application on a USB flash drive that works.
[SOLVED] Linux and the Mac Pro
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2011
First of all I am very new to Linux though I have been working with the Mac and Windows platforms for a few decades now. I am hoping this forum can help me with a particular problem I have been having. I have a late edition Mac Pro and need to install Linux (RedHat, CentOS, or Ubuntu) to run a particular piece of software. The computer itself is a 12 Core system with 24GB RAM and has one SSD drive (512GB) and two standard SATA 1TB drives, so there is plenty of workspace. The trouble I have been having is with the bootloader, I think. After having completed the Linux OS installation on the computer, trying different Linux flavors, it refuses to boot into Linux. I have tried making the Linux OS the only operating system on the computer and it still refuses to boot. I have also tried using the boot manager “rEFit” and as I have also tried what I found from some sites, (link to one example) ([URL="http://consultancy.edvoncken.net/index.php/HOWTO_Install_CentOS_on_a_MacBook_Pro"

Modifying the Linux boot process....
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 15, 2008
How do I setup the boot process to only boot to runlevel 3, (multi-user, console login only)??? I don't want graphic mode.
Also, If I wanted to add a custom procedure/script to run at boot time, where would I plug this in to make this happen? It would only need to run when or after entering runlevel 3.

[SOLVED] Introductory Question Multi boot USB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 12, 2013
Greetings. I am a Linux user for 15 years, but new to the forums. So I am not sure where to put this question.
I would like to put Knoppix and Parted Magic on the same usb stick. I have experimented with partitioning the usb flash drive (15GB) and installing Grub and syslinux in order to give me the option of which to boot, but can not get it to work. I can not get both installed and loading the kernel. I've searched and read until I clearly know just enough to be totally confused, though I am quite sure it can be done.
So I am looking to know if what I want can be done, and if so, how to get it done.
Thanks and best wishes.

Size of Linux Boot Partition
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 27, 2004
I am trying to setup xp and RHEL on the same box.
I have only only 1 NTFS partition used by xp currently and want to setup another VFAT partition for copying the linux boot sector there and then onto c:\boot.ini in xp and then use the xp boot.ini on a regular basis as my booting option source.
I want to keep the size of the shareable VFAT partition to a bare minimum only to copy the boot sector from linux to it and then onto C drive for xp.
What is the size of the linux boot sector so I can keep the vfat partition to something close to it?
Also, if as another option I install GRUB on the MBR during linux install and thus use GRUB as my booting preference, then if something happens later to my linux or xp OS do I get stuck can cannot reformat my drive if I want to and start all over again since the MBR is already written to by GRUB or can I reformat and start all over.
If I can then in that case I would prefer to install GRUB on MBR and boot from there rather than from
