« on: January 07, 2014, 11:11:27 PM »

KERNEL /boot/vmlinuz
append initrd=/boot/core.gz loglevel=3 cde home=sdb1 opt=sdb1 showapps desktop=flwm_topside cde
and the i copy my home with required data and boot script in opt/bootlocal.sh in my usb

That depends on whether the usb stick is discovered as sdb1 or not. If you always use it with the same machine, you can use"fdisk -l" to double check.

Also, it would be better to add the boot code "waitusb=10" or similar.

Use the UUID or LABEL of the USB stick. That way it's always found.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

See the persistent home chapter in http://tinycorelinux.net/~curaga/corebook.pdf or the pendrive part in the FAQ.
