I installed DSL to my 512MB Dane-Electric flash  drive via live cd and it wont boot to it.  I have tried both USB-HDD and USB-ZIP both of which my BIOS has support for and I set them to boot first for each try I did but I get nothing, it doesnt appear to even try to boot, no error messages or anything.  this is a Giga-byte 7N400 Pro2 motherboard, here is a link to some specs

EDIT: also, I checked to make sure the bootable option was set on the drive with fdisk -l on my native linux OS

Disk /dev/sdg: 512 MB, 512753664 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 489 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes

  Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdg1   *           1          50       51184    6  FAT16
/dev/sdg2              51         489      449536    b  W95 FAT32

don't know is this helps but on some bios's the usb-drive shows up as a real hard-drive. if it does, you have to select it in a different sub menu (hard drive boot priority).
