    for Christmas i got a logitech g11 keyboard and it works great. but for some reason i cant use it in my bios or in my boot manager. i have my old ps/2 keyboard hooked up and sitting under my desk when i need to do something but i would like to be able to get rid of the old one and just use the new one. does anyone know how i can do this?

    You need to "Enable USB Keyboard Support" in your motherboard BIOS. Most new motherboard have that option. Just look around until you find it, then enable it. If it's an older motherboard it might not have it. In that case try updating your BIOS. With a new BIOS version, that option might become available.

    I don't know if it is possible, or advisable for that matter, to boot from a flash drive.

    I was thinking more on the lines of XP, which is a totally different animal than Linux.

    Way too many variables there, for my taste. It may boot, but I can see a multitude of problems, down the line.
