Installing openSUSE 11.2

Hey everyone, Happy New Year to you all!
I have a bit of a "problem" you can say.
I have a computer with no cd/dvd drive nor a floppy drive.
It does however have USB ports and ability to boot from LAN or USB-FDD, USB-CDROM, USB-HDD in the Bios setup menu.
I've been searching for a way to install openSUSE 11.2 on this computer using a flash drive I have but I'm not being able to even after following a number of suggestions from posts on the internet.
Anyone have any idea on what I should do?
Thanks a lot in advance for any help.

More information...

What is this computer you have and what OS are you now running? Do you have a USB flash to use?
