Running Debian GNU/Linux from an encrypted USB drive

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 65.103.212.66] on February 19, 2008 11:24 PM
Currently I am running gNewSense from a USB drive. I had previously looked for information as to how (,and if it were possible) to install an operating system on a USB hard drive. I came to the the conclusion that it cannot be done, for all practical purposes. But I was considering whether it can be done or not with only the Microsoft Windows OS. Reading more about the freedom that free software provides has allowed me to choose to switch from Windows to software that has a license that I can agree to. I would also therefore like to thank the author, Avi Rozen.
