  1. I am considering getting a usb powered portable hard drive and using it for a multipass... need the space to load up a ton of ISO's... just not sure what drive will do this without issues. Pretty much all the ones I look up that I can find information on say they have crappy software and special drivers etc. Anyone have any suggestions? I was looking at this one here but I cant find much info on it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...2-021-_-Product
  2. Wish I would have read all the threads... mapping ISO's is much cleaner especially for the Trinity Rescue Kit I just mapped the ISO and renamed the USB to TRK_3-3 and it works. Edit: Nevermind it was feeding off the other files I removed them and the ISO alone is'nt working :\
  3. From the PEtoUSB ReadMe.txt USB STICKS TESTED ================= SanDisk Cruzer Mini SUCCESSFUL PenDrive 2.0 Mini SUCCESSFUL PQI iStick 2.0 SUCCESSFUL I-Bead MP3 Player FAILED (I think the UFD initializes too slow for the BIOS)
  4. Resources http://www.securitydistro.com/ http://www.livecdlist.com/ Havnt tried this but seems like a really cool LiveDVD http://supergamer.org/get.htm
  5. Is your computer capable of booting off USB?
  6. Going to try this one more time... First off I said if you don't get BT4 running the normal route I.E. follow Hak5 directions to setup the USB then follow mine... you should try to unetbootin the files because that is what I did just messing around I wasn't sure if it modified anything.... I just redid everything from scratch no unetbootin and it worked so scrap your unet setup and start over. So to recap... Follow Hak5 directions.. 1. PeToUSB 2. Grub Install 1.0.1 3. Copy grldr to USB 4. Create a menu.lst Then for BT4 1. Copy the BT4 ISO contents to your USB 2. Rename your boot folder from boot to bootbt4 3. Add this to your menu.lst title BackTrack 4 Pre-final root (hd0,0) kernel /bootbt4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper persistent vga=0x317 ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw quiet initrd=/bootbt4/initrd.gz boot 4. Download or create a casper.rw here is where you can download some large ones... http://webupd8.blogspot.com/2009/07/how-to...ubuntu-904.html 5. Extract it to your USB root As far as TRK 3.3 goes 1. Copy the contents of the ISO to the root of your USB drive 2. RENAME YOUR USB TO "TRK_3-3" 3. Add this to your menu.lst title Trinity Rescue Kit configfile /submenu.lst 4. Create submenu.lst and add this to it title Main-menu configfile /menu.lst title TRK 3.3 kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - as bootserver to boot other TRK clients kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 trkbootnet initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - running from RAM (best >= 512mb, 256mb min) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 trkinmem initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with bigger screenfont kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 normalfont initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - in simple VGA mode (debugging of kernel output) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=1 pci=conf1 splash=off initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with Belgian keyboard (see docs for other) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 keyb_be initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Virusscan all drives (non interactive) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 virusscan initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Try more pcmcia and usb nics (when not detected) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 pcmcia initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Try more SCSI drivers (when disks not detected) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 scsidrv initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with a secure shell server enabled kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 sshd initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Execute local scripts on harddrive of PC kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 locscr initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Fileshare all drives, secured with user kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 smbsec initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Fileshare all drives as guest, no security kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 smbguest initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Single user mode kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 runlevel 1 initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Acpi=off, noapic PCI=bios (Alternate boot 1) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose acpi=off noapic pci=bios initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Acpi=off, noapic PCI=any (Alternate boot 2) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose acpi=off noapic initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - PCI=conf2 (Alternate boot 3) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf2 initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Verbose startup for debugging after initial bootfase kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 debugging initrd /initrd.trk timeout 100 title TRK 3.3 - SSH server and run from RAM kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 sshd trkinmem initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - SSH server, run from RAM, act as a secure fileserver kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 sshd trkinmem smbsec initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with proxyserver support enabled kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 proxy initrd /initrd.trk title Memory tester: Memtest86+ v1.65 kernel memtest.x86 5. If you want an updated TRK you need another USB with TRK on it via trk2usb then you update that one via updatetrk and copy those files over to your multipass.
  7. I was getting the cannot find CD or USB error until I renamed the USB Stick to TRK_3-3 then it started to load but had a ton of errors about missing libraries or something cant remember the exact errors but I think it was gettext that was the root of the problem. These were caused by me having the TRK files in a sub-directory... so I put the files directly on the root of the drive and it booted up just fine. Edit: Tried it again on a different USB stick from the start and it worked without a hitch.
  8. They are included in the System Rescue CD ISO under the bootdisk folder.
  9. If anyone wants it here is a screen capture of Milla with the multipass in The Fifth Element converted to be used as a splashimage http://files.getdropbox.com/u/628316/multipass.xpm.gz
  10. How to get Trinity Rescue Kit up and running 1. Copy the TRK ISO contents to the "Root" of your USB Stick 2. Rename your USB stick to "TRK_3-3" without quotes... if you do not do this it will give you the error that it cannot find the CD etc. 3. Add this to your "menu.lst" title Trinity Rescue Kit configfile /submenu.lst 4. Create another list file called "submenu.lst" and add this to it. Note: You dont need them all just the ones you want to use or if you only want a couple you can just add them to your menu.lst instead. title Main-menu configfile /menu.lst title TRK 3.3 kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - as bootserver to boot other TRK clients kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 trkbootnet initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - running from RAM (best >= 512mb, 256mb min) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 trkinmem initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with bigger screenfont kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 normalfont initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - in simple VGA mode (debugging of kernel output) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=1 pci=conf1 splash=off initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with Belgian keyboard (see docs for other) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 keyb_be initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Virusscan all drives (non interactive) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 virusscan initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Try more pcmcia and usb nics (when not detected) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 pcmcia initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Try more SCSI drivers (when disks not detected) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 scsidrv initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with a secure shell server enabled kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 sshd initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Execute local scripts on harddrive of PC kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 locscr initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Fileshare all drives, secured with user kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 smbsec initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Fileshare all drives as guest, no security kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 smbguest initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Single user mode kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 runlevel 1 initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Acpi=off, noapic PCI=bios (Alternate boot 1) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose acpi=off noapic pci=bios initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Acpi=off, noapic PCI=any (Alternate boot 2) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose acpi=off noapic initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - PCI=conf2 (Alternate boot 3) kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf2 initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - Verbose startup for debugging after initial bootfase kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 debugging initrd /initrd.trk timeout 100 title TRK 3.3 - SSH server and run from RAM kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 sshd trkinmem initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - SSH server, run from RAM, act as a secure fileserver kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 sshd trkinmem smbsec initrd /initrd.trk title TRK 3.3 - with proxyserver support enabled kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 proxy initrd /initrd.trk title Memory tester: Memtest86+ v1.65 kernel memtest.x86 Edit/Note When using updatetrk it copies everything from the root of where TRK was booted and rebuilds which is going to thrash your usb stick and probably not work after it does... that is if you have other files like BT4 etc on it... to get around this at least for now you can trk2usb it on another usb update that one then copy the files over to the Multipass
  11. For persistent changes on Backtack 4 Pre-final use title BackTrack 4 Pre-final root (hd0,0) kernel /bootbt4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper persistent vga=0x317 ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw quiet initrd=/bootbt4/initrd.gz boot and place a "casper.rw" file on the root of your usb stick you can get some large casper.rw files from here http://webupd8.blogspot.com/2009/07/how-to...ubuntu-904.html I set it up this way and did apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, fast-track update all etc etc and it has stuck :) Edit: The casper.rw file is where your changes are stored so choose the size you want based on the changes you will make.
