Bootable memory stick

Debian and Knoppix support it but couldn't find anything on windows. Bummer it would be great to ditch the floppy in favor of a usb stick.

BUT, your computer must support booting from USB. If it doesn't, you can't do it, how many software apps you install.
What he said .. w/out a bios that supports it (or some kind of bios overlay) you can't boot from USB device :(
You got me interested. My ^*%*^(_ bios supports boot from everything USB except a memory stick. Dam thought I had finally got rid of the floppy. :(
Got a solution I think.
I got a distro of linux to work on it.
Anyone find a way to make a bootable floppy that will then boot the usb stick?
Dont need it for alot of the bios'es I work on but it would be nice to have.


I tried the USB ZIP (as well as all the others) and it didn't work. I'll keep poking around but I think it's just not supported in bios.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
