Creating/Installing from USB device

Hi all,

Whenever a new OS is released in beta/RTM, I've always had to burn an image file onto a DVD before installing the software on to a test machine. I don't have much of a problem continuing this way except that the two PCs that I usually download the beta software with either only has a cd writer or it doesn't have a media drive at all.

Want I'd like to do is to put the image file on to a USB device and have the new OS to install off of the USB device, but I have no idea how to put the installation files on to an External HDD/USB flash drive and have them bootable.

It'd also help if I can put the recovery DVD for my Asus eee box on to a USB device as this is the machine I don't have a media drive.

Can anyone help me on this please?

Thanks tdinc for the links.

Would I be able to put multiple OSes on to one USB HDD and be able to select them when I boot from USB?

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
