USB Floppy Drive

#1
My laptop does not have a floppy but I can easily buy a USB Floppy Drive.

Will I be able to boot the computer from a floppy drive run from a USB connector on the laptop?

I have a P4 2.4GHz, 512MB laptop running XP Home.

i'm fairly certain, but not 100%. what brand/model laptop is it?

i want to point out that instead of spending that money on a slow 1.44mb floppy drive based on archaic technology, you'd be much better off getting a cheap 16, 32, or 64mb usb key thing. if your laptop can boot from a usb floppy drive, it will be able to boot from a usb key. it will be faster, more durable, and hold more.
