I have been trying couple days to get Grub, the bootload, to work on an
USB pendrive without a breakthrough, making the latter working as an
USB HD. The BIOS of my motherboard supports;
I have no problem to get a Linux running on a pendrive formatted on
FAT16 ZIP geometry using syslinux to boot minitrc.gz.
The problem in front of me are
The pendrive must be on FAT16/32 otherwise the BIOS won't detect it.
FAT16/32 does not support symbolic link.
If you have any breakthrough please keep us posted. TIA
