Unetbootin and SUMO linux.


Recommended Posts

First I downloaded unetbootin and SUMO linux from here. I then used unetbootin to install the sumo ISO on my flash disk but when I boot, it only gives one option of "default" at the boot loader instead of the sumo splash screen. How do I change it back to the SUMO boot loader?

I spent a few hours trying to get it to work by editing syslinux.cfg and I was able to load backtrack3 fine but samurai, dvl, and helix2 fail to boot. dvl fails and gives a kernel panic saying "No file system could mount root" my guess was that the ramdisk wasn't mounting but I was not able to find the reason for it because the grub commands look ok. I looked at the config files in /boot/grub and tried to put the main parts into my custom syslinux.cfg but no mater how many times I changed the commands I always get the kernel panic.
