There are already disto's that will boot off of USB devices, like MP3 players, A lot of distros like SLAX will fit on a Mini-CD and can also be booted fro a USB storage device...

It seems what your attempting is already feasable.

hi kencaz
how are you doing!

Ian_Hawdon is talking about making a firmware for the S1 mp3 player, it not about booting linux off the usb pen drive.

for your information ---> S1 mp3 player consist of a Z80 core, LCD display, some keys, usb pen drive feature, FM radio, voice recording feature and ofcourse the usb interface.

so Ian_Hawdon is talking about porting Linux to that platform not booting the PC over USB.
