I don’t know about installing the image to the HDD, but a question arises. Is the hd formatted in an ext3/reiserfs/etc… or is it fat/ntfs. if it is fat/ntfs i would suggest u format the drive or at least a partition on the drive using ext3, if that fails, sadly, u will need to wait for someone who has done this before. i simply run the image off the cd and using pre/post boot script put my changes there.
that’s why. Your saying I can’t extract it to a partition. Because that’s what I’ve been trying to do (and to JC, I have tried formatting the partition and not formatting it).
The reason being is because I want to dual boot the OS. What I’m trying to do in the long run is setup an ubuntu router vs zeroshell (using webmin), but that’s another story, so I was trying to setup a first partition to hold zeroshell that I could boot to until I complete it. I love Zeroshell, I just wanted to do more with my 3.0 Ghz PC than routing.
