Re: compiling kernel / booting from usb
I've had no trouble installing Dfly directly on a 512MB USB memory
stick just as I would on a normal HDD and it booted fine.

How to compile a kernel?
(Can't find instructions in handbook, man-pages, wiki)
Currently i run an ugly setup, having the whole DragonFly thing
installed on an external Firewire- Drive.
BIOS can't boot from there, so i tried an old 128MB USB stick,
which i prepared with fdisk, disklabel etc. as described in
the installation README for manual installations.
First stage boot loader appears, but then seems unable to load
the second stage. Any hints?
Would it be possible to compile a custom kernel small enough
to fit on 1.44MB floppy disk?
This is just an inermediate solution. As soon as i get Win4BSD
working i'll swap to internal disk :)
