OCZ and Patriot are a safe bet also Smiley

And don't buy just the cheapest from each brand - get one from the middle of their product line.

And I still wouldn't recommend putting Windows on a USB flash drive - I even thought it's not possible.

nope, not gonna put windows on it since i would need a huge flash drive for that. if i'm gonna go the flash drive route, i'll be putting linux on it. but my main question was if it's possible to get a linux mining machine in a 1gb flash drive footprint.

It is probably possible with some very small stripped out distro, but why would you want to do that?
Just get a 8GB drive and put Ubuntu on it.

It's all about the game, and how you play it

unless you have a stockpile of 1gb drives it's not going to be worth the effort.
however you could do 2gb easily enough with linux coin

and a 512mb persistance however i'm not sure how much of an effect the size of the persistance file has on the performance of the miner it's my understanding this is just storage of configuration and such and in that case 512mb would be more than enough for miner configuration information.

If you found that funny or something i said useful i always appreciate spare change
