Prepackaged Linux distro on a bootable USB hard disk!

This is a really neat idea, a 40GB Lacie USB Hard disk with an installation of Mandrake Linux 10.0, ready to plug into a PC and go.

They even ship it with a mini-CD so that you can boot it on systems that won’t boot from USB, which is a neat idea.

This is taking the Knoppix bootable CD idea to its logical conclusion, now you can carry your entire PC with you without needing to carry a PC with you, if you see what I mean. 🙂 Now all we want is something that will detect the architecture and boot the relevant bootloader for the system, so you can run it on a Mac, etc, too.
