Hi,

     I recently was able to install Vector Live to a UFD ( http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=3411.0 ) and now i need to put the installation disc on a UFD. Can that be done? Is it done with the same method as with a live disc? Thanks.

I did everything exactly as i did with the last one but it doesn't boot. I was getting an error of "kernel image not found", or something like that, so i had to move extlinux.conf to the root directory. Even with that it gets stuck at boot:. Any ideas?

I use the standard version. What do you mean "because of the kernel?" The SOHO version will probably be too heavy. Thanks.

You can use the soho kernel to boot the std installer though

Do i need to download the SOHO ISO and burn it? Or is that kernel available somewhere else? I suppose it's this: VL5.8-SOHO-final.iso. Thanks.

Pick one kernel from here Cheesy:

http://ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/kernels/

I think the soho kernel was the 2.6.20.3

I downloaded 2.6.21.1. The higher the number the better, right? Where do i put this, though? Do i have to convert it to vmlinuz? I don't see a vmlinuz on the install disc. Thanks.

Maybe i've been misunderstood. The installation disc gets stuck at boot:. I have been unable to install Vector in that machine.

Do you mean a VL install CD that you burned yourself? If it doesn't get past boot then it is usually:

1) faulty CD burn (try slower speed, better media)
2) ISO burn untested with md5sum
2) faulty CDROM drive

No, it's a USB flash drive. I'm trying to put the installation disc on a UFD because my Dell laptop has no optical drive.

Now i get: Could not find kernel image: kernel/sata.

I downloaded the kernel twice, just in case. It is in the right place: isolinux/kernel. *sigh*

Just a reminder: isolinux.cfg was renamed to extlinux.conf and moved to the root of the drive ( from the isolinux directory).
