Description of problem:
The USB removable hard disk is becoming a common installation medium.
New motherboards now support it as a boot option. I'd like Fedora Core
to be able to boot the install ISO from a USB HD and install from there. 

It's that not possible, then it would also useful to have a Fedora
"installer" OS on a USB HD partition which will boot on the user's
system and install on the local disks.

My motherboard, Supermicro X5DAE, treats the USB DVD/CD as a CD-ROM
for booting.  It does, in fact, boot off the medium, but hangs shortly
after the blue install script initializes.  The last thing on console
2 was a message saying it was about to rmmod usb-storage.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-07 14:05:23 EDT
There's a diskboot.img in the images/ directory already for starting
off the install.  Then, you can have the ISOs on a partition on a USB
hard drive.

Not really going to do much more than that here.
