>I've no experience as such of bootable removable media, but I would suspect
that NT can't do it (much as other people have insinuated, on other lists)
from anything smaller than a Jaz, and that lilo should be able to do it (there
is a slackware version that will install into a zip disk). It depends on whether
you can make a bootable Zip/whatever. If you can persuade your machine
to read a boot sector from the drive, lilo will probably boot from it.
