I have downloaded the *cough* version running around on some demon site *cough* and have run into a problem trying to get it to work.

I used DD on a windows box to copy it to my USB stick (Can't get OSX to reconize my usb stick through VMware) and can get the box to boot the stick (loads the kernel etc).

However it hangs on "Waiting for root device". I've heard you need to unplug the drive and plug it back in after a few secconds to get a IO message thats needed to reboot it to recovery mode. However I can't get this message. Anyone have any ideas?
