Sorry for jumping in like this but I had the same problem when making a
"pocket-computer on a USB-memory-stick, couldn't get it working either.

After discovering the "'live'-at-the-promt-trick" I made my
"pocket-computer" but wanting a state-of-the-art tool I updated and
upgraded it.

Now I get a busy box alert telling me there is no system to be found. I
thought I would mention it as it might get to be your next problem.

Does anyone know the trick to get round this or is a PC-on-a-stick
