Booting from a USB Key


Hi Everyone
I will get straight to the piont. I want to have a cut down version of linux boot from a USB Key(128MB) or a CD but I would prefere the first option.

I have herd of STIXX www.stixx.org.

Is there any other options.

Thanks Brad

Have you looked at www.distrowatch.com yet?

Its best to install a small live CD type version to a USB key drive. It is possible to wear out the flash memory since it has a limited number time you can write to it.
