    ok, i tried putting SLAX Kill-Bill on my removable 40Gb hard disk, but for some reason i could not boot from it instead of doing everything fine... It boots from the HDD, but the OS doesnt load....

    now i want to have suggesion on what can i install on this hard disk, i will use it as a live OS on any machine, so should basically be like some live CD, what should i install, link to it??

    The actual question is "How to boot from a removable USB storage device"?

    It should be done by changing the MoBo BIOS settings.

    NEVER STOP'S....

    Booting from a USB flash drive is simple, if the computer system's BIOS supports it. With the power off, plug in the USB device into the USB port on the computer. Turn the power on. During startup, a Boot Device Menu is usually available by pressing the F8 function key. Simply select the "USB drive" from the Boot Device Menu and the computer should boot from the flash drive. If a Boot Device Menu is not available after the computer system has inventoried the drives available, you may have still be able to boot a flash drive by configuring the boot sequence order in the BIOS setup. After booting, the flash drive should be identified as drive "A" or "B" even though the device is not a floppy disk drive.
