Yes, I have. I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 from the Buffalo Micro USB reader. My SSD has Windows XP Pro installed.

This exactly what I want to do although I want to play with the Moblin distro for a while as a sort of (almost) instant on option for the times i don't need XP. I have the live iso and have tried both unetbootn and dd for windows which does a bit by bit copy but when I try and boot from the buffalo it says OS not found...

This is the guide I followed to install Ubuntu 8.10 to the Micro USB flash drive:

http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ubuntu-804 ... /#more-372

Using this method makes the flash drive bootable, you don't have to run any extra commands. I know it's not the same distro you want to try, but it may lead you in the right direction. There are also plenty other tutorials on that site.

Thanks for the link, I'll try it...Moblin is in alpha stage so it was really only to play with Ubuntu is what I will probably end up with anyway.

If anyone else is willing to send any of these out, I'd sure love to get a black one.

Please PM me with how much, and how you'd prefer payment, Etc...

Thanks,

Tom

Stu hasn't visited the forum in over a month.

I will be in Japan next month and will see if I can find some of these in a store. No guarantees.

If you should be able to bring any back, I would also be interested. Red would be fine (any color really).

Heck, I'd drive up to pick up from you. I'm in CT. It would be a nice drive. Convertible weather is here.
