Re: install etch from usb onto xp machine

Are you sure your pc can boot from usb?

I notice that some pc doesn't allow boot from usb, some other allows
that but you must enable the usb boot in bios utility (and set the
correct boot order, of course)....

Verify that, you must make bootable the usb-key.
If you have a linux machine you can use syslinux.
I've find just now this old guide (http://d-i.pascal.at/) that i think
can help you.

I usually install debian in no-cd machine using etherboot
