xubuntu on usb stick

May 30, 2008

Only a few steps are needed to install a complete *ubuntu on an usb stick. I have coosen Xubuntu because I have never tested Xfce before and more important I thought a lightwight distribution would be a good idea for an usb stick. A detailed description can be found here:

It’s pretty easy, no special linux skills are needed, just double check which device you are formatting 😉

If you plan to use some part of the stick for other stuff, both on linux and on windows, keep in mind that windows got problems with partitions on removable media. Therefor the partition for random stuff has to be the first. (and fat formated of course )
