hi all   
tinycore is the greatest
thanks for all the work creating it

1. does anyone have the ash script commands to make a live usb with syslinux and dd
i can make one that loads but i cant get the usb to be rw

2. another request
can anyone tell me how to use the usb as home
i made a 1 gig image with an ext2 filesystem on the usb
and can loop link it and write to it when tc has loaded
but i cant make it be recognized at boot 

any ideas are appreciated

thanks

What file system are you planing to use ?
How do you make your syslinux USB ?

Have you tried the bootcode "home=UUID=your-uuid" ?

thanks for the reply  polikuo

1.  the usb has a fat32 filesystem
     syslinux has instructions on how to load it

2. i use home=sda1   as the bootcode  to try to get to the usb

Have you loaded dosfstools.tcz ?
IIRC, you would need that to have read/write access for a fat32 file system.

I'd go for the UUID method.
To find out your UUID, type

--- Code: ---blkid /dev/sda1

--- End code ---
