That's possible.  You do understand that flash drives only have very limited 
# of write cycles before they fail, and should be operated in read-only mode 
most of the time?

If you're planning to use this for a dedicated appliance-type role, ie, 
router, firewall, this is fine.  If you want to do development or 
general-purpose interactive use, USB flash drives aren't a good choice.
