You can check this with 'df -h' as long as there is a filesystem already on the usb drive. Do *not* use the partition number after the sdX, i.e. sdd1, since the 1 refers to the 1st partition. The boot image has to be the entire drive.

I put LinuxCNC on a thumb drive and was able to boot it, but I don't have the setup files on it and the Linux won't connect to my wired internet for some reason.

        Working.

        I had the partition number specified instead of the full drive.

        If anyone else needs a 10.04 linuxCNC 2.6+,
        I can clean up my files and make it accessible on the net.
