Sorry to intrude, but did you say booting from USB drives?

Is it possible to make PC or amd64 hardware do this? Older machines
seem to not do this but I haven't tried on my amd64 machine. If this
is possible this simplifies some stuff for me.

This would be quite convenient for installing on a lot of machines.
