I've been using a USB Flash-Drive for about a year now when i flash either my Motherboard, DVD-RW drives, or even Video cards. Let me tell you it's more reliable then a Floppy Disk. You'll need to setup the flash-drive to boot correctly. One thing you'll notice is if you want to boot from flash-drives you'll still need a floppy disk to set them up correctly, i know it sounds so retarded. Mayber there is another way somehow....i don't know but here is some good info websites....good luck!
