Hey guys, not even sure if this would be possible, but i figure its the best place to ask. For xmas I got a 64 megabyte usb drive. One of those tiny ones. I was wondering, would it be possible to set up a program on it, to only allow the computer to boot up, and or load windows with out first entering in information? I just thought it would be kinda cool to have some like that. Almost like a USB key.

Make the computer boot from usb, put a bootloader on the usb drive that asks for a password before booting Windows.

hmm....a boot loader? Could you please provide more information? Are there free bootloaders available? I am not a programming guru, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
