damn small linux from USB-stick
 
hi guys i like to hear your opinion about my little idea...
i just buyed a 128Mb sized usb-stick and it is bootable and so on. i have an elder biostar board on that bios i can't set up booting from usb drive so i like to flash my motherboard's bios. do you think that it is possible to boot damn small linux (www.damnsmalllinux.org) from my usb-stick?

Most motherboard manufactures will list what the BIOS updates were for. You will need to check for your particular motherboard. If it doesn't including booting from USB then you are out of luck.

It's a nice concept, though. I remember reading about it somewhere else, like using USB Keys start up the computers and log in and everything. Nice concept and all, but most mobo manufacturers just don't let us boot off of USB, especially the older mobo's....
