10.5: Install on a PPC Mac from an external USB Drive

That only works if you own one.

Furthermore, it's not like optical drives never fail...


Being able to boot from a USB keychain-style flash drive is a seriously useful thing.

This not only allows for installations from USB drives (flash or otherwise), but running repair/recovery utilities from them as well.
