The Eee does definitely boot from USB. At least, my Eee 900 does.
That's how I installed Jolicloud on it. You have to press a hotkey to
get it to do it though.. The BIOS doesn't by default - when it's
booting (and I can NEVER remember which) hit F2, or maybe F12.. it
might have been Escape or Del. My Eee is at home so I can't try it out

Also, if you have a giant massive USB stick. Get hold of XBoot (as
reported on Lifehacker:
) then just copy over some ISO files and you can choose which one you
boot into. It's totally awesome!

Hope you like Crunchbang.
