I have checked a Phoenix and a Intel BIOS (I think AMI based) both work
fine. I have problems with a Award BIOS. (A older one.)
I use install-mbr for the boot sector. Very nice mini bootloader. :-)
Better than fdisk /mbr. :-)
Syslinux for the boot partition. I have booted and run a complete KNOPPIX
from USB HD. (250GB :-)
Today I have seen a small Harddisk that use power from USB. (No external
power supply, 40G USB 2.0)
So I am waiting for the new kernel with USB 2.0.
