vl livecd boot parameters (for making a multi-OS usb pendrive)
« on: December 11, 2012, 11:35:38 pm »

Hi. I am making a Multi-OS pendrive with lots of repair tools, diagnostic, antivirus, etc. Plus several linux distros and windoze versions for the purpose of doing computer repairs. So far I got Ubuntu and ArchBang working, but The Vector Linux 7.0 LiveCD's (VL7.0-GOLD-STD-LIVE) initrd seems unable to find the rest of the VL7 stuff and load it. From what I could see the problem seems to be that it expects to have the "boot" and "VL7.0" folders at the root of the disk they're in (they're in /packs/os/vector). And I would like to know. What boot parameters I would need to pass to syslinux to "force" the initrd to look in that path for the rest of the live media?
