Another suggestion would be to use something like
Actually you could also do your own thing by
downloading the distro
and then burning it on your usb key. I did it a long
time back; and if
the only thing I had to do was to make the partition

bootable flag set using fdisk).
Follow these steps, if interested
There are other distro's available on the USB; just
google for them.
only real question is the use -
Mandriva has the support structure etc., if things
