    Perfect! Will try it right now in my eee 1000h ^^

  3. Might be useful to people if you also had the command to install the /boot directory so there would actually be a vmlinuz kernel to boot. Along with a splash.initrd file.

    mkdir /mnt/bt/boot
    mount /dev/sda8 /mnt/sda8/boot
    cp –preserve /boot/vmlinuz /mnt/sda8/boot/
    cp –preserve /boot/splash.initrd /mnt/sda8/boot/

    nice but you forgot the boot directory in the copy command!
    best wishes

  5. I had the same trouble and it was not solved until I changed sda2 by hda2. I have Ubuntu 9.4 and BT3 instaled. Just add the next lines at the end of your menu.lst and change (hd0,1) and hda2 to your own parameters. The line “savedefault” is not neccesary.

    # This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for an existing
    # linux installation on /dev/sda2.

    title BT3 Graphics mode (KDE)
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz vga=791 root=/dev/hda2 ro autoexec=xconf;kdm
    savedefault
    boot

    title BT3 Graphics mode (Flux)
    root (hd0,1)
