Lightbulb Slackware install from a flashdrive?

I have a Dell Inspiron 5000. A laptop that's kinda old and the drive is finiky. It only works sometimes. I just bought a 1 gig, 2 gig, and 4 gig flash drives ( went crazy on black friday). Can I put slackware on one of those and install from them? I don't want to use the flashdrive for a live install. I want to transfer the files to the hd, set up the boot loader ect... so the computer will run by itself. Is this possible?

Double posting is not a good way to start out on this forum.

Install Slackware using a bootable USB stick.
