I'm following a tutorial to boot Linux from usb3.0.

I stumbled across this tutorial: http://evilshit.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/how-to-install-ubuntu-server-on-a-usb-3-0-stick-and-boot-that-stick/

In the last section (configuration), it says to open up terminal and go /etc/.../module

I do this and add the following lines as the tutorial says to:

  • xhci_hcd
  • usbhid
  • hid
  • usb_storage

Now it says to save the file, but I don't know how?

In nano use "WriteOut" (CtrlO) to save the file.

And how did you respond to that? –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 18 '13 at 1:09
    
Yeah, I'm not sure how. Sorry for all the questions. I'm new to this. Got to start somewhere. –  Bradley Mitchell May 18 '13 at 1:13
    
Press Enter to accept the current filename, or use the other keys on the keyboard to edit it first. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 18 '13 at 1:14
