http://crunchbanglinux.org – Well I know it isn't ruined, but I just dd'd the newest DSL onto my 4GB flash drive. The problem is, I without thinking copied it right over the partition table and now the flash drive shows up named "KNOPPIX" and says it is locked. Even after using gparted to completely erase it AND create a new file system several times over, it is still named KNOPPIX, and locked. Any ideas? I have erased the flash drive a couple times and created a new partition table, then formatted to FAT16 yet it's not totally wiping the drive. (HowTos)
