I don't have any USB storage except my MP3 player (HANBit XDRUM XD-405, in 
fact it is not good enough for its price, but still useful). Although this 
storage device can be used for arbitrary files, not only MP3s, I am not sure 
if making /dev/sda1 bootable is possible without damaging the player. I don't 
even know how all other bootable USB sticks are organized. So please ask 
someone else.
