Haven't tried 5.3, but 6.0 beta2 works fine as long as your mobo 
supports booting from usbcd - the tyan should do it.

in my case 4.9 + 5.4 find the USB drive, but they panic on boot - but it 
doesnt relate to the usb cd, same happens if I install on a HD in 
another box and then boot from the HD....another story 
altogether...gentoo will take over that box methinks.
