2 USB as one?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, i just got a rather big linux distro and i don't have enough memory sticks to boot it from. So is there something i can use to "join" them together with the need for a cable. I just need something to make 2 drives think they're one.
Thanks in advance

Thats awesome ^^

But yeah it's not desperate, I'll end up going and buying a big disk/flash drive. I was just curious to see if it had been done or not, thanks anyway!

No, not without some layer of abstraction.

It is like asking can I "join" these two DVDs?
