Booting from usb is only supported with usb 2.0 devices. And must be supported
by the parent hardware. After initial bootloader you get a umass scsi emulation
on the usb stick. It would be possible to use it. With normal bootloader. If you
can load the loader on the boot 0 block. I heard not all usb sticks support this.
