Booting USB drive from floppy
How does this idea sound? What I'm gonna do is have an external USB hard drive on which I will install Mandrake 9.2. Since I want this to boot on all computers, I was thinking I could make a floppy which I could boot the system from, then somehow mount the USB drive as the root filesystem. I haven't seen this idea anywhere on the internet, and I believe it's physically possible, but I wouldn't know how to make the bootable floppy initialize the USB drive, and to which device it would be assigned.
Does this sound feasable? Thanks.
