OK dudes after much thought i was walking around and realised that no one has even driven any thought into what Darren is trying to do. The OS on a stick...with u3 tech. well i came across a micro OS that would be usable in this situation and it is called goblinx. it is the new micro release and i was thinking of using it cuz of the fact it only takes a foot print of 100 megs and the boot loader on the CD ROM partition is a smart idea... thing is we need to come together and see what we can pull together as a team. here is a screen shot of it:

Yeah, you can also bartpe windows XP onto a USB drive as well as  most any OS that can be widdled down to essentials with a boot loader.

Not every computer can boot from USB.  The U3 part of the U3 drives lets you boot from a CD.  Did none of you watch the live show?

You might want to reread the posts, none of them said that a usb could boot on any pc.

Did you not read?

Its even specifically mentioned in the first post....

There isn't really anything that prevents most Linux distros with a live cd being put on the cd partition, it stretches nicely  :-P

Yes, I did watch the show, and yes, I do understand your point. I was implying the boot loader part be on the U3 CD partition in the way that Mubix was saying from the last Live EP. Then you can load whatever OS fits is on the larger partition.
