I have a live-cd which has a syslinux on it and boots a linux
It works ok and boots the kernel ok from a CD drive.
Now,I need to add support for this live-cd so that
it will boot from an external USB cdrom drive.
My bios **DOES** support booting from USB; but when
I try to boot it hangs in the middle while looking for
I can gunzip the initrd I have , add modules or what else is needed ,
and gzip it again.
The thing is I don't know exactly what to add and
to where. What was a little strange to me is that when
I opened the initrd there was no "linuxrc" or "init"
script inside it (it contained /dev/,/etc, /modules,
/proc, /sbin, /selinux ,/sys, /tmp, and /var folders.
under the /modules,there were the following files:
module-info modules.dep modules.usbmap pcitable
modules.cgz modules.pcimap pci.ids)
should I add to modules.cgz the usb-storage and other modules
(How can it be done) and it will load them automatically?
Any idea ?
