CD/DVD drive isn't bad too. anyway - you don't change kernel every day.

or pendrive. possibly floppy but i don't know if kernel (with at least 
disk driver and ufs) can fit on it compressed. i don't think so.

ZIPdrives internal (i've got a bit for free).


or simply small hard disk. there are lot of options.
