Booting from USB devices is particularly interesting when it comes to
these small flash disks etc. If only the BIOSes could support them
(don't know if there are some that do this yet). Given that CD-Roms
need to be burned, and floppies are obsolete, I was hoping we could boot
from small devices like this.. </dream on>

Also, don't forget that booting from USB CD-Rom/CD-RW/HDs may be
something people want to do at some time..

Cheers,
