In the following tutorial, we cover the process of installing SLAX 6.0.9 to a USB Flash Drive or other portable device. SLAX is a tiny Linux distribution (190MB) created by Tomas Matejicek. SLAX is essentially a stripped down version of Slackware Linux. Currently available as an ISO for Live CD creation or as a tar file for extraction to a USB stick, SLAX Linux also utilizes the ability to save your changes persistently and add or remove modules on the fly.
The following SLAX Boot CD can be used to boot SLAX 6.0.9 from a USB device on computers using a system bios that does not natively support booting from USB. It could also be used to boot SLAX Linux from a flash drive on an intel based Apple Mac, MacBook, or MacBook Pro that uses EFI instead of a bios. This SLAX USB Boot CD was created by Tomas M (the creator of SLAX) for SLAX.
Once you have your SLAX installation up and running, you might want to add additional software applications. These applications can be added to SLAX Linux via the installation of compressed modules.
Once you have accomplished a sucessful boot of SLAX Linux and have begun to make changes and customizations to the SLAX environment, you might wish to save those configuration settings back to the USB stick. This will allow you to restore those changes upon next reboot.
