Doing a Full install to a USB Thumb Drive?

Hi
Can one install a Full F16 onto a USB thumb drive, in a similar way to installing on a SSD drive? I actually installed F16 onto a 8 Gig USB stick but it will not reboot. I used set partitions on both and did not use LVM. I looked at the USB stick and it has a similar Partition Structure to one of my SSD drives. However the USB stick will not boot and the SSD (which is mounted also through an external USB connection) does boot.
I have used the exact same partition structure except the SSD is 32 Gig and the USB stick is only 8 Gigs. I feel that it should boot but it does not. Any help would be appreciated...
