i have a linux distro that i use on a usb flash drive. it works on the 1.1usb motherboard ok but is a bit slow. my bios wont pick up my 2.0 usb pci card. in windows the usb is drive E: can i write a bootdisk to run from one of my bios visible devices to switch to drive E: to boot my linux distro.
i've tried the ms dos startup disk, freedos and ntfs4dos but none of these seem to recognise the flash drive in the pci usb. i guess this is the sort of thing you were thinking. i haven't tried any linux yet, do you know of any text based linux that might fit the bill or will i have to disable gui's etc. i'm a bit of linux noob but willing to give it a go.
