Can I ask for help here?
Well.. anyway... Why ask if I'm going to....!

I just bought a pen drive today, and remembered DSL can save/restore settings on it... So I've downloaded DSL current (1.2.1 I think) and burn a CD. OK booted.. OK. Now I want to save my settings on my pen drive... I can mount it OK... /dev/sda1, I did a mke2fs -j /dev/sda1... OK ext3 FS on it... My guess is that I have to go to System -> Backup/Restore to save my settings... right? It asks for a device, I tried: /dev/sda, /dev/sda1, mounted it, /mnt/sda1, and It just hanged, I discovered that on tty1 it gives a msg like "Invalid device /dev/sda" for all my attempts... What am I missing here?
