I am new to the whole linux ... i got one laptop and one desktop and i would like to do this ... install linux on a usb drive ( i have 2 gig and 8 gig ) plug it in and start the laptop. and the laptop can boot from usb i check so when it boots the linux it should have a media player type wsoftware that i can use only to watch movies and listen to mp3's and stuff. thanks so i guess im really looking for a media manager / player type software that quickly boots up and can read mp3's and divx's off of my c: in the laptop without me booting into windows xp. thanks.
