Tried to install Haiku to USB as suggested in the magazine (LXF 149) page 127. All goes well until I get to the point where it says to enter:

dd if=filename.img of=/dev/name

I've tried various scenarios for filename and name with no success. Can someone help me define exactly what I should be putting in place of "filename" and "name" or where I can find this information ??
Sorry to say, I'm clueless...........

Thanks,
Bruce

Try
Code:
dd if=haiku-r1alpha3-anyboot.image of=/dev/sdb
Normally an image file is named <filename>.img, but for some reason this one seems to be <filename>.image. I presume that will make no difference to dd, and the image will still be copied.

/dev/sdb is just my suggestion of what you may have as your USB drive, but you can find it easily with
Code:
sudo fdisk -l
If you have only one hard drive and no other external disks attached it is most likely to be /dev/sdb
