Yes* Yes Only tried it on one non USB bootable machine. *Not tested on bios that allows USB boot.

Kingston Data Traveller 128MB and 256MB USB2.0 Yes Yes Only tried on a few PC's so far. As long as the Bios supports USB Booting then no problem ?

Memorex Thumbdrive 512MB, USB2.0 No Yes ? ?
Memorex 1GB TravelDrive USB 2.0 Flash Drive Yes Yes Dell Inspiron 600m Booting 2.0 was quite slow, as was the first save, formatting the 512 meg filesystem file, but everything else was fine. 1.0.8 works great, though it takes a while to load the save file at boot and save it at shutdown. 1.0.8

Transcend JetFlash 256MB No Yes* Does not boot on any system. Boots on all tried so far with floppy, but you will need to try both WakeUSB and Wake2Pup floppies (search the forum), as sometimes one works and sometimes the other does.
