    The computer being a laptop is the only thing that's prevented me from hooking up another disk; I have several smaller older drives, but I don't have my desktop anymore. And one of those USB attachment drives would be pretty useless.

    Actually yes.

    They say it's possible to boot from a usb memory. I don't know if it works, since I've never tried, but one could try...

    Maybe your right, my BIOS boot order thing gives the option of booting from USB devices, but I'm not sure how that would really work, I mean, I don't see my BIOS having all these drivers now.

    Someone I know once booted puppy linux (I think) from a pen drive, so I guess it can work.

    You just have to find a Linux distribution that will fit onto a pen drive, and get the biggest pen drive you can get your hands on first. But then you can stick it into virtually any modern computer (that can boot off of a pen drive) and get into your own custom operating system, with all of your files and so on . . . great if you use many different computers (like me) and are allowed to reboot them (unlike me).
