Hi. I have bought a Kingston USB stick and would like to partition it with ext3 so that I can boot from it. How do I do that?

Don't have a Linux box only WinXP SP2. Have tried Partition Magic but it only shows my stationary disks... The usb stick doesn't show up anywhere...

Any other tools I should try??

My expirience was (FW Oleg's CR3c, Kingston DataTraveller)

1. Switch off ftp and samba in web interface, reboot
2. From telnet at asus box run

insmod scsi_mod && insmod sd_mod && insmod usb-storage
3. Insert USB-stick, observe detection lines in /tmp/syslog.log
4. Run fdisk at asus box (It is a bit different from old DOS fdisk, so take care)

fdisk /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc
5. Follow other instructions p1 and onward at wl-500g.dyndns.org (http://wl-500g.dyndns.org/) section "Root file system on the external USB drive"

It worked for me, your mileage may vary
