Question Floppy/CD to Boot USB Kernel


I am new to Linux and looking for some help in getting a USB install running.

I have downloaded the Fedora 8 LiveCD

The PC BIOS does not support booting from USB (no updates available either). It will boot from Floppy Disk, CD and Hard Drive.

I want to boot from Floppy disk or CD, and then load the Kernel and run the OS from the USB Key. After achieving this I would also like to make the USB install writable, so I can change settings and install applications.

I found a site for featherlinux, which allowed me to extract a bootable floppy image to disk using winimage, copy a preconfigured Knoppix install to USB, and then run it as required.

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to do this with Fedora 8, and how to do it.

Thanks in advance.
