Assume you are using Fedora? You may want to follow this site first to see how it works:

First off, be sure that your BIOS supports booting from the Flash Drive. Put the Flash Drive into a USB slot, and boot up and hit the Del key, or what key is needed to enter in the BIOS, and see that your BIOS can boot from USB. If so, then you need to install Linux onto the USB and a bootloader too. What size is the Flash Drive?
