How to get the boot images to work with my USB pendrive??


I'm about to install Linux for the first time.
I would like to boot using my USB pendrive instead of Floppy or CD-ROM.

So I would like to know how to make it boot with the boot images available at the Mandrake site. I tried to use rawrite in the dosutils folder, but it does only support floppys.

So I could need something similar to rawrite that could write to my USB pendrive as well.

All i have access to now is a PC with WinXP.

Any help is appreciated!!
