Ok Per.

I'm not sure why space is a problem - unless mkbootdisk needs to use
some temporary space. Here is what I do:
Due to me. I have not noticed the way 10.1 is build up with a / and a /home
I could see using the df command, that the partition was full.
I have installed too much on the / partition.

1. insert USB stick
1a. if it gets auto-mounted, unmount it. 2. NFS mount /inst-source/ at /mnt
3. chdir /mnt/boot/i386
4. perl ./mkbootdisk --32 --partition /dev/sda1 /mnt
5. done
6. umount /mnt
7. remove USB stick.


Well, I'll see if I can make that above on my server.
Obviously the OS on this system does'nt automatically reconize a new usb-hardware until the system has been rebooted.

Thanks for your information.
