You can try Slax. It's a LiveCD distro that you can install to boot from a usb drive.

Im going to attempt this later, install slack on an 8gb usb stick, and use it as a hard drive.

If you boot with huge26.s, i find it is detected, so i will just tell it to install on /dev/sda1, which is the partition i created on my drive.

Hope this helps
