Can I install to USB disk?

Hi

Instead of installing SUSE 11.1 to hard disk, can I install it in a USB disk?

If yes, what should be the minimum space requirement in the USB disk?

Thanx

Hi
Sure can, have a look in the HOWTo section;

sure openSUSE is a great OS but if you’d like to install OS to a USB, why not get an OS specifically designd for that purpose?(u might hav noticed openSUSE is a bit heavyweight compared to other distros). There’s plenty of them out there for USB; puppy linux(Boxpup is a favorite), **** small linux NOT(dsl-n which is barely a 100 megs and has everything u need),etc. Sidux, archlinux are other lightweight OSes

I’m already using Ubuntu 8.10 from USB disk. :slight_smile:

In one of my computers, I have Atheros WiFi card and only SUSE recognizes it! :open_mouth:

Also I find SUSE bit more professional looking than other distros.

ah, i guess by USB disk, u meant a portable hd. i supposd u meant like a pendrive. anyhow, gud thing u got it sorted out! cheers!

Had a look on HOWTO section for USB installation - looks a bit scary to me :expressionless:

Just wondering, is there any way to run from live CD yet save settings on USB disk (pen drive) so that sessions become persistent?
