First of all thanks for sharing.
FYI for everyone else: It appears that this method works for those computer whose BIOS support booting from USB-HDD
The methods that are currently supported in DSL have been for BIOS that boot from USB-ZIP, which can sometimes be a pain to get the geometry just right and using mtools, and syslinux.
This new method doesn't require that. But does, at least on my test machines, to require USB-HDD.
So proceed with caution. Especially since it zero outs your pendrive.
I am packaging this up as a fully automated script to compliment our current offerring. That way, when one selects install to pendrive from the menu, you will be prompted which version depending on your BIOS capability.
