Just downloded, burned and installed the distro and I am incredibly
impress by the speed. It is probably faster than my desktop. I have not
even killed inet, cron, syslog and other stuff I do not really care for.
I will load mysql and apache and see how that works but it will be
later. I will let you know. The file manager looks very cool too.
About your question, I have never had USB compiled into any kernel so I
would not even know where to begin. In the midtime I would just get me a
floppy I were your and figure out the rest later.
I do not know what I am talking about here but I would probably start by
looking into grub to see if it can be setup that way. I imagine that
since you install this in the MBR this is a possibily. I do not think
the BIOS can do that in your laptop or you would have the option.
