    Hi :)

    I have a 2GB Sandisk Cruzer Micro USB pen-drive (which I have to say once you've removed the horrible, horrible U3 stuff that it's an amazing pen-drive with such good read/write) and I have a LiveCD version of Knoppix which I want to put on to the pen-drive enabling me to run it on my HP Compaq TC4200 tablet laptop as it has no CD drive...

    I've followed the lines of pendrivelinux using a knoppix iso but I'm not 100% sure it has worked for this :/

    Also, how do I know if I can boot from USB (my desktop bios says something along the lines of USB boot device...)

    Thanks,
    Seph.
