Booting through a USB stick


I wanted to try installing the SUSE-10.2 through the internet this weekend and have downloaded the .iso image. However, i wanted to try to boot my system through my USB stick. I downloaded the software that is required to make my stick bootable, and also checked with my BIOS. There is a section in the advance configurations, which reads

USB-boot [Enabled ]

However, in the boot-priority section, the USB drive's name does not show up. What should i do to set my USB drive as the first boot drive?

Can you post your motherboard brand and model and bios version. It is a bit hard to give any help without them

I tried it on a newer comp, and i was able to boot through my USB stick. I also found out that, the .iso is a kind of a compressed file and so i extracted it into the main directory of my pen drive. What should i do next to connect to the net and start the installation?
