Well, before we go any further. Let me throw an interesting concept at you. Typically Linux, doesn't refuse
to boot. In fact thats one of the things its really good at. It'll boot off of almost anything, given the opportunity. USB drives, flash drives, cd-roms, harddrives, or the internet/lan even. Its up to you to LET it boot.
Have read or peeked at this yet?
