"Ubuntu H2 : The first Linux solution bootable on an USB Micro Hard Drive

Although it's one of the smallest portable USB drives, the Ubuntu H2 Micro USB drive can easily handle sharing digital photos, MP3s, video clips with friends and even homework. Making it a great way to move files from one computer to the next.

Challenging the notion that USB hard drives are just good for portable storage, the Ubuntu H2 is the first USB hard drive with an onboard OS and office software. The device is bootable from any PC with an x86 processor supporting USB boot."

This is really cool. I was wondering how long it was going to be before someone figured a bootable-usb ubuntu solution in the Puppy and DSL vein.

This is cool, but of limited appeal though. I might consider it, if only to be able to haul my favorite OS with me in my kitbag all the time--but most users don't know that you can boot off anything but the Hdd (and thus, preinstalled windows).

buy.com has a 4GB version of that drive (sans Ubuntu...but it wouldn't be hard to fix that oversight) for US$99. It's out of stock right now, though.

Edit: Here's the link (http://www.buy.com/prod/US_Modular_4GB_USB_Monstor_Drive_USMD_4GB/q/loc/16073/10381020.html).
