Boot off usb drive?
does anyone know if it is posible to boot of a usb drive on a abit nf7-s v2 motherboard. i have the latest bios and there is no option in to boot it. there is an option for zip and ls120 but i dont kno what any of those are. aswell as choosing the boot order like first second and third there is an option where it says boot other device. it has the option to either enable or disable but doesnt say what it will do.

It should be possible if you configure lilo or grub to boot of a usb device. e.g if you have root partition on a usb device then editing lilo to have something like:
image=/dev/sda1/boot/vmlinuz label="linux_usb" root=/dev/sda1 initrd=/dev/sda1/boot/initrd.img append="acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda6 splash=silent" vga=788 read-only
