    hello everyone I followed this guide to make a multi boot usb drive I like to troubleshoot and I also pen test a lot of stuff at work such as voip and network apps. but i cant seem to get grub to load up backtrack on my flash... i get a grub error that the menu is missing in the bt4 boot folder but its there i am thinking its the syntax booting it. i am not a linux guru and I am pretty old school with unix ... and grub i am pretty clueless about

    any help would be awesome

    Did you follow step 3 correctly? Name the file menu.lst (small L) not menu.1st
