What does everyone use for USB sticks? I wanna get away from the CDROM/Floppy thing but not sure what USB stick to buy off which to boot.

i think a cf card in a cf/ide adaptor is the best solution - get the adaptor that fits on a pci back plate and its out of the way but can be removed and updated without opening the case

I agree, I like the CF card the best. I use one of these http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-DOUBLE-CF-MALE-TO-IDE-ATA-FAMALE-40PIN-ADAPTER_W0QQitemZ260380874778QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3c9fe8d81a. Works great and none of the issues with getting the wrong type of USB key drive.

Some have seemed to have an issue with them in the past, I simply choose not to deal with it. The auction I won was for 5 of the adapters for like $7.99 with shipping.
