Yeah, that's possible.
You would only install grub on the thumb drive if it could boot, correct.
To have an option in your desktop grub, you can:
copy the kernel and minirt24.gz to your HD, and let them find the data on the stick (you can also boot DSL from your HD and cd and pcmcia cd and zip drive etc. this way, by having only the data on it)
Since grub doesn't have usb code, it cannot boot it directly..
For the entry do something like this, changing parts for your needs:
title DSL from usb stick
kernel /boot/linux24 ..insert the DSL options you want here, get from isolinux.cfg for example..
There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
