Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick

itimpi,

Excellent HOW-to document. Followed it with out a hitch. I now have my pi running off an old 80GB 10,000RPM WD Raptor drive I had laying around.

Recommend pinning this one or someone should add it to the wiki. Great job!

<t>After BASIC the second language I learned was Pascal. I found it rather hard at first but after I got used to having to declare and type all my variables I found it was much more usable.
