That sounds promising. But when I went out there it looks like you can't 
download it - you have to buy their USB key. I have no problem with that, 
except that I need this computer up and running by tomorrow night.

The BIOS is definitely set up to boot from a USB device - that is the preferred 
boot device. But I have no idea how to take a distro, such as Fedora Core 6, 
and get it installed onto a USB device so that the BIOS even has an opportunity 
to boot from it.
