    sometimes it even depends on the batch of mobo's, some I've had to deal with were a but fussy about booting off of usb floppy until after they'd been flashed. Not so helpful if you're trying to flash them from a floppy disk.
    but yeah, most modern mobo's will boot from usb floppy. (or indeed memory stick, or possibly even an SD card in a usb reader...).
