    Using cd to boot from USB on old machines

    We've built an encrypted Xubuntu 8.04 installation on an 8GB USB stick, with a 100MB boot partition and an encrypted root taking up the rest of the stick. We want to roll this out to a number of users as a secure environment for remote working, but some of them will have machines that won't boot from USB. Is it possible to boot the stick from a CD, perhaps by recreating some elements of the USB stick's boot partition and addressing the UUIDs of the USB stick's partitions?
