RE: Booting from a usb key fob


I am also interested in some of the stop you took to accomplish
this...especially preloading the drivers.

I've successfully run kickstart from USB keys with EL4. Haven't tried
EL3, but
it was fairly straightforward ...

I made an disk image file the same way one would make a cramfs image
making sure to put 'ldlinux.sys' (install the syslinux RPM on your build
machine) on it. From there, it was easy enough to just dump it to
/dev/sda (my
USB key) using 'dd'.

If EL3 makes sure to preload its drivers properly, I think the process
be fairly straightforward.

I can privately pass along some of the build steps I use to make it go,
you're interested.
