    This has little to do with Linux. Very few systems permit booting from USB
    storage devices (for example, most PC hardware will not permit it).

    However, if the hardware supports it, then sure. There's nothing magical
    about it being USB storage media (other than little hardware supports
    booting from it).

    Copy the kernel, modules, and minimal binary files and libraries to the
    stick, and then configure and install a bootloader on the stick (i.e.,
    lilo).
