As it turns out - piece of cake. Nothing to it. I had a 128M USB stick
(marketing present) on my desk and after some minimal research I found
the "mkbootdisk" on the mini-iso in /boot/i386/.

My USB disk comes up as /dev/sda, and I had the mini-iso mounted
at /mnt, so:

/mnt/boot/i386/mkbootdisk --32 --partition /dev/sda1 /mnt

Works absolutely fine.
