Make a Slackware bootable USB-stick

Preamble

I think that the usbboot.img idea, as system to make a bootable USB-stick, has to be overcome, It is slow as boot time and uses a proprietary FAT filesystem. The only reason whereby Slackware team mantains this system in use is, perhaps, because the windows users cannot run bash scripts in their own system.

But to run a simple bash script is sufficient any Linux system, also the mini-system inside the Slackware DVD, so, also windows users that have at least a PC with DVD reader can run an external script.

usbslackDVDboot.sh


The script

This is a simple script that can make a bootable USB-stick (or USD-HD) similar at Slackware installation DVD, that may contains also the packages to perform Slackware installation in computers without DVD reader.
