Hello all,

If I want to put my linux rootfs on a USB stick do I just create a custom kernel/boot.img which will point to a partition on a usb stick (e.g. root=/dev/sda1). I'm thinking of setting the third boot.img as a usb boot.

I'm aiming for:
boot 1 - rooted android
boot 2 - debian tp
boot 3 - custom kernel pointing to rootfs on usb stick. I plan to use this to test out other distros and, eventually, newer kernels

sound feasible?
