I am trying to install Linux, specifically Lubuntu or BackTrack 5 on an external HDD (Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex) but I have had no luck using YUMI, or UNetbootin to get it working. I do not have a CD to install from.
I want the hard drive to be able to save the data within Linux – as in: if I install a program, it will stay there. I also tried doing this with a flash drive, which does boot, but it does not save data. I tried following Pendrive's tutorial on creating a
casper-rw file and adding "persistent" to various files, but I cannot get it to save files.
Basically, I just want a form of Linux on a portable device that will save files and settings between boots.
