Embedded Linux distribution boots from USB thumb drive

Linux Mobile System (LMS) is an implementation of embedded Linux for USB "thumb" drives that can boot most any x86 computer into a Linux environment.
Unlike so-called "live CDs," LMS allows files to be stored and information exchanged between systems. An an optional boot floppy is also available,
for systems' whose BIOS can't boot from a USB device.

According to LMS co-founder Javi Roman Espinar, Linux Mobile System's (LMS) is aimed at the development of specific tasks such as network
administration, security analysis of networks, and recovery and repair of host data. "The main idea is to carry all the potency of Linux and our tools
in our own pockets, ready to be used," said Espinar.
