Boot Disk On Zip Drive

I just purchased an Iomega 100MB USB Zip Drive. I like it. Kinda bought it for the simply fact I hate dealing with all the different boot disks that I use with OSes and fixing others PCs.

I want to make a boot disk mainly for my XP because it requires 6 disks and I HATE having to transfer all 6 disks. When I download the bootdisk file from bootdisk.com and first run it, it asks for the letter of my drive to extract the files, I select G for the Zip drive but the program doesnt continue.

How can I go bout setting up so my zip dish replaces all 6 floppy disks for my xppro installation?

Also bcuz its a usb drive will it still recognize it on boot if i go into my cmos and change boot up drive settings?
