I dont know if this will be of any interest to you guys.

I have a lexar 1GB flash drive.

I used the mkdiskimage script and then did
syslinux as described in the readme.usbkey.
(the script took a REALLY long time too)

I booted into 3.7 knoppix.   Copied all the directories
onto the key.  Then copied the contents of the /boot dir into
the root dir.  I renamed isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg

I had some problems because syslinux did not like the minirt24.gz file.
I booted to a windows box and unzipped the minirt24.gz into miniroot.img

and *BLAMMO*  it booted knoppix!

Just like the cd... I did have to fuss with the bios boot order..
