Booting through a USB stick
I wanted to try installing the SUSE-10.2 through the internet this weekend and have downloaded the .iso image. However, i wanted to try to boot my system through my USB stick. I downloaded the software that is required to make my stick bootable, and also checked with my BIOS. There is a section in the advance configurations, which reads
USB-boot [Enabled ]
However, in the boot-priority section, the USB drive's name does not show up. What should i do to set my USB drive as the first boot drive?

USB = hard-drive
Because a FAT16 or FAT32 File-system is created on your USB-stick, I guess it would be recognized as a hdd.
So try to set your BIOS to boot from hard-disk.
Of course you also have to indicate that the partition on your USB is active
and all other partitions on other hdd's may not be set as active.That way
your box knows where to boot from.

Yes, you can boot from a usb stick.
Your drive's name won't show up in the boot priority list, just types of devices. Move the USB priority to the top, then reboot with the usb stick in.
