If your BIOS supports booting from USB, it should. You can use the livecd and run the 'Install to USB' script. If your BIOS doesn't support booting from USB, I can't help you. I'm trying to figure that one out myself.

I booted an old HP Laptop with a Jump drive and a wakepup floppy.

The laptop didn't support USB booting, and it booted fine.

Win XP was hard crashed, puppy ran fine Very Happy

Search the wiki for wakepup.

I hope this helps.
