    I have an 8GB USB flash drive. I want to use this drive for optware and extra storage. I have several questions:

    1: With a USB flash drive and 8gb of space, what would the recommended partitions sizes be?
    2. What partitions should I actually create. Wouldn't swap be dangerous on a flash drive? Do I need a JFFS partition?
    3. How do I mount the flash drive in Tomato to /Opt after partitioning. The GUI sets the mount point the /mnt?
    4. Is there a script I can put in the GUI to safely mounts this auto?
    5. I want a very basic setup for now, the router is an ASUS RT-N16 running tomato Beta5-USB/VPN. Basically, for now all I want are extra Linux utilities, Lynx, Nmap, a full featured Netcat. I think Kisment would be cool, maybe a cheesy mail program. I just want standard tools to work with. For now this will be my only Linux box and I want really manage it in a way a typical Linux admin might via SSH. I would also like to mount a user home folder to the USB flash drive.
