Load Windows 7 with a Thumb Drive

With the explosion of Netbooks, it has become important to find new ways to load operating systems. I recently picked up a new Netbook and immediately desires to load Windows 7. I LOVE the new OS and am so pleased with it I have been running it since Beta with minimal issues. 

The easiest way IMHO, is to load it from a Thumb drive. This is a super easy and fast way to load your new OS and make sure your Netbook runs the way you want it to. Check out this link from MS with a step by step and a video !

That's a pretty handy link, though I'm not sure I want to keep Win 7 on a thumb drive when I can carry a DVD easily. What I'd like is a bootable Win7 USB drive for those times I need to access a system that isn't working properly.
