Thanks for the reply.  I've managed to do that.  I would like to completely emulate the CD from the pen drive.  I am still trying to figure out how it is done by the CD.  I look at the CD and I don't see the boot files and such.  Not sure what I am missing. :|

I have looked around and the closest thing I have found is a how to for Debian but I can't seem to figure out how to adapt it to what I want to do.  Any help or links would be much appreciated.

You might want to use the server cd as the base.
Should be do- able. Add a second partition with the files from CD and do a hard
drive install, using the drive that the usb drive detects as.
