Do you see any error messages in /var/log/messages or dmesg when you boot deltah?

If you know how to debootstrap then you could try installing deltah that way from Knoppix.

I installed deltah to a usb stick and it boots fine but I then tried to install to
the hdd but the installer cannot see the hdd. I also ran the partition editor and
still could not see the hdd. As a sanity check I booted to Knoppix and the hdd is
visible. Maybe this is a feature. It seems like a bug.

I think that vmlinuz has a fixed root device and maybe that is why the hdd is not visible. I tried to build a 3.x kernel to see if I could bypass the vmlinuz but no luck.

My netbook has no cd/dvd so I am constrained to using a USB stick. Is there a way
to alter the files on the USB stick to fix this or get around it?
