I'm not sure if someone already stated any of this information, but I thought it might be of use.
Dell Optiplex GX280 with A05 BIOS update
using SanDisk 256 Cruzer Micro Skin formatted as FAT
I used the Installing to USB HOWTO on the Wiki Method I, using windows and dsl-embedded and syslinux 3.61.
DSL works like a charm! Using it right now on the above setup.
Word of warning: when flashing the BIOS on the Optiplex GX280, DON'T USE rev. A08 to upgrade from rev. A04. I accidentally fried an unsecured computer in a university computer lab by using the A08 upgrade. I still don't know exactly what went wrong, but when using A05 everything went smoothly. For some reason, BIOS revision A04 has problems loading DSL all the way. Rev. A05 works without a hitch.
