I have an idea to boot a kernel from a floppy and then mount the actual filesystem from a usb memory. I only have internet access in school, but they're running windows - a linux dist on a usb stick would solve this(update with cvs, send/recieve mail etc.).
Anyone has any good suggestion or perhaps showstoppers for this project? (wouldn't it be cool, btw?
Is usb memories robust, are they truly 'volatile'?
