I downloaded Slax along with UNetbootin to make a USB boot disk for the netbook. When I power on the Netbook and hit ESC it comes up with UNetbootin heading with 3 entries below::
(*) Act as PXE server
I arrow down to Run Slax and hit enter but nothing happes.
This works pretty well in Windows if you have a FAT formatted drive. If you want to do a Linux formatted drive like ext4 you will need a Linux to do this install, but ti is still relatively straight forward.
Sorry I took so long to get back to you. I wasn't telling to to install SLAX to your hard drive, I'm sorry if it came across that way. SLAX is meant to be installed on a USB like you are trying to do and has a built in way of doing so without the Unetbootin tool. In my experience Untebootin is a great tool for making more traditional Distros run on a flash drive, but it only makes things more complicated when using SLAX .
If you read through the documentation it's pretty easy to do. Basically unzip the appropriate download folder to the flash drive you want SLAX on and run the .bat file as an admin. That's it nothing special.
