I have a 16 mb Siemens Memorybird I want to use for booting to dos instead of the floppy (ancient stoneage crap!). How do I do that? I trid to just copy all the system files from the floppy and set the computer to boot from usb-hdd in bios, but that only gave me the message "Corrupt harddrive".
I only have Win XP.

Does that pen ddrive support booting... as not all do.

I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM :eek:

the pen drive is not going to have a master boot record/fat table like hard drives do. Thats why it wont boot off it. I dont know of any motherboards that will boot off a usb memory stick yet.
