Still working on my trusty Pentium II which does not give me the possibility to have USB as boot possibility. Same with my Pentium III laptop.
Would like to use my USB stick for booting a live linux but found up to now no usable solutions.
Can somebody help me out?

As someone else already said. First thing would be to see if there is a bios update. Just possibly it may allow USB boot.

I don't know what your situation is, or why you want to run it from a USB stick. BUT, IF it were me I would just dual boot from the internal hard drive. That's exactly what I did with my laptop. I got an eighty gig hard drive and partitioned it 50/50. Half for Winders and half for Linux.
