Running from USB

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – heres the scenario. i have a bunch of 2GB flash drives. im trying to install CentOS/RHEL 5 on them and have them run just simple CLI. these are going to be used for flashing firmware onto some ATCA blades. usually in the past when i have done this i use Unetbootin or something similar. trouble is, using the ISOs that i have, they attempt to install the full distro and my flash drive runs out of space. so my question is, what would be the best way to slim down this installation and have it run from the USB drive. obviously i dont need any X programs or other flash & flair.
