Here are 2 different 4Gb USB drives.

Flash memory: http://www.ecost.com/ecost/shop/detail~dpno~339754.asp  $143

Mini Drive: http://www.ecost.com/ecost/shop/detail~dpno~306189.asp  $80

How does one load Centos on these?  Can you boot from CD, point to an 
FTP server for OS, and install on the USB drive, eventhough the 
system has its own harddrive?

Does the install have to be for a specific system?  Of course right 
now, I only have one USB bootable laptop.

Oh, and ecost is one of the best places to get things like SD 
memory.  Watch their budget countdown...
