    Partitioning Kingston USB stick

    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 section "Root file system on the external USB drive"

    It worked for me, your mileage may vary
