Thanks for the response. It would be decent to have a ready-made setup
that works without a lot of tweaking. But since this is a hobby, I'll
learn in the process when attempting to get the usb drive to boot up.
I did chroot to the usb installation and do some tinkering with the USB

environment was educational and I learned some processes that Linux has,
so it wasn't a total loss.
Oh.. you don't really have to chroot. You just
