Linux/Memory Stick


How can I install linux on a 512 usb memory stick and have it boot automatically when I insert it into a computer. Can that be done? I want to use it as a diagnostic tool.

plenty of examples found via google, e.g.

you probably want some version of live cd, suhc as knoppix or damnsmalllinux as these run nicer in that sort of situation compared to fedora etc... but in theory you can install nearly any distro if you put your mind to it.
