You can download the buildroot busyboxconfig image, which is called "initrd.tns" on download.
Then you can insert "initrd Linux/initrd.tns" in your bootscript to boot from the initrd.

Now that I can boot, it's time for the dumb question : how do I run X (startx doesn't exist) ? :P

Try `X` or `Xorg`.

Edit : My bad, it's VAR.

You format your usb drive (or a partition on it) and copy the contents of the buildroot image onto it.
Then you can boot from it using "root=/dev/sda<partition>" as param.

ext3, ext4 and probably btrfs, although you want to use ext4. It's still the most common format.

Most likely ext4, I don't know if btrfs is supported yet.
* Streetwalker runs
Edit : :ninja: Though btrfs is awesome. I use it daily. ;) (not exploiting it's features yet though).

So, In Windows, I have the option the format the usb-drive in "exFAT"
In German: "Größe der Zuordnungseinheit: Standard"

Don't use exFAT. That's a strange format with low interoperability.

You have to use Linux for that. Windows doesn't support it.

That's a modern format tailored for Flash devices, but it still has low adoption.
btrfs is still mildly experimental.
