Booting Linux on USB disks via initial ramdisk

Install your Linux via some CD/DVD on your usb disk. Choose lilo as bootmanager and install lilo onto the MBR of your usb disk. When you try to boot from your usb disk it should fail, because the kernel will not recognize the usb disk when it tries to mount its root partition.

Now you should use your CD/DVD again and boot it rescue system via CD but then accessing the usb disk:

Suse (german)
Booten über DVD/CD --> Installation --> installiertes System starten

Then log in as root and edit /etc/sysconfig/kernel. Make sure the following modules are listed in the INITRD_MODULES section: sbp2 usb-storage ehci-hcd uhci-hcd sr_mod sd_mod scsi_mod. Then rebuild your initial ramdisk with mkinitrd and register the new initrd with your boot loader: lilo. Now your system should be able to boot with the usb disk.
