Creating bootable USB windows xp with mac.

I have a macbook air and I don't have the external dvd drive.
I need to make a bootable usb key with windows xp from OSX lion.
I have the iso. Is the disk utility able to do that? I tried using boot camp but it ruined 1 of my USBs, but let's not talk about that.

So, is there a way to make a bootable windows XP USB drive? ANd then install it in boot camp?

I googled about it and couldn't find anything...

$30 external DVD drive from your local store will be useful for this project and for any other DVD installs down the road.

This worked for me on my 06 MBP:

I was able to install XP from a USB stick, you will need a windows machine to prepare it on though, I used Fusion

Hope it helps
