How do I install Ubuntu to a USB key?
I am stuck and need some help. I have a broken hard drive and I am running Ubuntu from a USB booting it in "try" mode. That works most of the time until I need to install something like Flash and I cannot do it because it will not write to the flash drive. So I need to install Ubuntu to a flash drive. I attempted to bootup and install and keeps getting stuck or I am doing something wrong.
Here are my steps:
I downloaded the alternate 11.10 version and use Unetboot to write the ISO to the USB Stick.
Then I bootup and tell it to install (the USB drive I will be writing to is in the computer also) I go through the steps and it ask me setup my internet.
I use wireless and do not have a wired connection and I manually setup the connection. It works as far as I can tell, after that it ask for a hostname and ubuntu is there so I use that.
Then it ask for a domain name and I enter one (I run a website and use that name, does that mater?)
Then it goes to a blank screen and I realize it is a command line and I can enter info there.
This is where I get stuck, I attempted to follow the info provided here but I am confused and need some advice on how I go about getting this installed. HELP!
NOTE I am using the alternate installer as my flash drive I am installing to has less than 4.5 GB (It is a 4GB Flash Drive)
