I came across this product from fingergear - computer on a stick. It's a USB flash drive that is ready to go as a full computer with the OS and all files preloaded. I was trying to do this myself but I couldn't get the partitions to be protected and secure and I found the COS and it has it all pre-loaded. I guess I'm just not good enough as a linux hack to set it up right. I keep erasing my OS! Has anyone heard anything about it? I'd like to get it but I want to check it out first. http://fingergear.com

I tried to create one of these once by chopping apart Windows98 and shell swapping portions of 95 in. I managed 45MB including common drivers. though networking was an issue.
I also created a mini version of 3.11 once that supported fat32 from the original Windows95 installer..(which is a stripped windows 3.11!) .. it was 8 Megs total with MSoffice. I still have them somewhere in my CD grave.

I still have a CompactFlash IDE one which I use for ghosting Windows setups.

it worked eventually. but very bady and I lost interest. ... I hope someone rips this!
