Slackware on usb flash drive

Is it possible to install Slackware on a usb flash drive using usual 'setup' command and selecting usb flash drive (usually /dev/sdb1) instead of hard disk (/dev/sda1, /dev/sda2 etc)? Are any particular modifications needed? What should be the grub-legacy menu.lst entry for this? Thanks for your help.
