I think this was what made it also probe usb drives.

that worked - it allowed me to install the OS onto the external USB drive. however, i can't boot it. when i boot my system i get the normal windows boot menu.


my bios doesn't recognize the usb disk at all so somehow i have to get a bootable cdrom with usb storage support that i can use to load linux from the external disk. i tried following the instructions at


http://www.vigla.eclipse.co.uk/

but it presumes you can actually get into a linux system to build the bootable cd, which i can't.

is there any way to load linux from windows, or does someone have a pre-made boot cd with usb storage support?
