|Would like to support DSL by purchasing one of the USB Pendrives....|
However, before I do, wondering if my ol' Toshiba Portege 3490CT laptop would support this approach?
It does have a USB port, but I know that you can't boot up from an external USB drive, need to either use Toshiba's external DVD drive with Toshiba connector or Toshiba docking station with DVD drive.
Running XP on it now....
If it won't work with this laptop, then I can just install normally and make a donation...
Thanks for any and all advice...
Only way to know is to try it. But you already seem convinced it doesn't work. Do you have a floppy drive on the laptop? If so, you can use a floppy to load the bootloader that then loads it from usb.
